Truck and bus customers of Daimler Truck Financial Services throughout the UK will now have access to commercial insurance and risk advisory services under a new co-operation agreement signed with Marsh, the world’s leading insurance broker and risk adviser.  

The service offering includes a holistic reassessment and realignment for Daimler Truck Financial Services’ customers, and incorporates motor insurance, commercial general liability, goods in transit and commercial business insurance.

Daimler Truck Financial Services UK opened for business in August. James Hubbard, its Director, Strategy & Marketing, said: “The co-operation agreement on insurance that we have entered into with Marsh reflects our commitment to provide a truly comprehensive portfolio of services for our customers.

“We look forward to making further, exciting announcements in 2023, particularly in relation to eMobility and the role that we can play in helping operators and indeed Dealers as they embark on their transitions to a zero-emission future.

“As well as financing their acquisitions of battery-electric and, further down the line, hydrogen fuel cell-powered vehicles, Daimler Truck Financial Services will also be well placed to provide support in other areas, such as charging infrastructure.”  

Chris Barclay, Affinity Leader, Marsh UK, commented: “We are excited to launch the UK phase of our collaboration with Daimler Truck Financial Services, building on our European co-operation agreement. We have colleagues across more than 50 locations throughout the UK. This aligns with the wide geographic spread of Daimler Truck Financial Services dealer partner locations. We look forward to providing insurance and risk advisory support and advice to Daimler Truck Financial Services customers, whatever their size and location.”

In addition to the UK, the new insurance service has already been rolled out in Spain with other European markets planned to follow shortly.

Daimler Truck Financial Services today operates in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Japan, Mexico, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom and the USA. Its contract portfolio with leasing, financing and insurance is around 24 billion euros (Q3 2022). Daimler Truck Financial Services is part of Daimler Truck AG.
