In a new service to the global transport & logistics, ports and marine industries, the TT Club has developed an “industry events” function on its website www.ttclub.com in order to provide a single point of reference for all major transport industry and marine insurance events, trade shows, exhibitions and conferences.

Paul Neagle CEO of TT commented, “TT has been at the heart of the transport and logistics industry for almost 40 years, and I believe this will be a useful resource for all players involved in these sectors”.

The Club’s aim is to help promote events that are relevant to decision makers in the transport, logistics, ports shipping, and marine insurance sectors whether from an operational, risk management or legal perspective. TT Club itself actively participates in many industry events each year, meeting existing and prospective members and brokers, and providing conference speakers and sponsorship.

Ian Lush, the Club’s marketing director, said: “TT’s contribution is global and we view trade shows, exhibitions and conferences as excellent for furthering the drive for best practice, operational safety and security as well as communicating the Club’s core values.”

TT Club has recently regained an ‘A-‘ rating from specialist ratings agency A.M. Best following four consecutive years of improving financial results. Among the factors in considering its upgrade, the agency noted the specialist business profile, focused on the provision of insurance and risk management products for the global transport and logistics industry.

Through continued support of industry events the Club intends to play its part in continuing to build professionalism in the transport and logistics industry. The Club also invites conference organizers to send details (title, dates, web-link, location) of forthcoming events to marketing@thomasmiller.comfor inclusion on the TT site.
