They've got a quick message for brokers about the AM&T Online Survey.

AM&T (Allianz Marine and Transit Underwriting Agency) is a specialist in the Australian marine and transit insurance market. The team at AM&T are considered the trusted partner for brokers when it comes to the complex world of marine.

This year, AM&T celebrates 10 years of successful business operations. To commemorate this milestone, we look back on its history to celebrate the team and its success and look ahead to what’s in store for the insurer.

Where it all began…

At AM&T, we’ve always been proud of the depth of experience within our team. Today, we are extremely proud to be celebrating an incredible milestone with Michele Ostowari.

Michele celebrates 40 years working in the Allianz family. From her first day, when Allianz had just opened their office in Australia, navigating through mergers, massive advancements in product and technology, then switching to marine insurance, Michele continues to have a positive attitude and support her team through thick and thin.

Did you know that AM&T cargo and carriers policies are available to quote, bind and renew online via your broker package on the Sunrise Exchange via Allianz Australia's Evolution platform?

AM&T commenced its operations as a specialist marine and transit underwriting agency on behalf of Allianz Australia Insurance Limited 9 years ago this month.

Insurance underwriting has often been described as part science, part art, and that can certainly be the case when it comes to Marine policies.

Over the last 9 years, our expert team of underwriters have been asked to consider some weird and wonderful commodities and have certainly needed a degree of understanding and occasionally some imagination when designing the policy.

Marine Insurance is a complex world. There are constantly new challenges, unpredictable costs, the clear and present uncertainty of weather phenomena and other external factors. When it comes to marine insurance, working with a specialist in the field can provide support and reassurance when making decisions about your client’s marine cover.

Australia experiences the impacts of cyclones almost every year. Cyclones frequently cause major damage to a wide network of industries. Shipping, transport and logistics can be heavily affected with significant financial loss caused by extreme weather events.

As we enter November which is the beginning of cyclone season in Northern Australia, AM&T’s Cameron Livingstone, an experienced mariner, explains how cyclones form, why they are so dangerous to the shipping and transport industry and why we could be facing a particularly difficult summer ahead.

The team at AM&T (Allianz Marine & Transit) has recently partnered with the Institute of Transport & Logistics at the University of Sydney (ITLS) to undertake an investigation into the risks associated with Cold Chain Logistics.

The study was conducted with the purpose of better understanding the current risks inherent in the storage and transportation of refrigerated goods and to identify opportunities to mitigate these.

The stage four Covid-19 restrictions now in effect in Melbourne are having significant implications across all business sectors. This includes our Australian cargo, shipping, transport and logistics businesses.
