Truck drivers, cargo and warehouse personnel, and construction workers feeling the impact of Victoria’s lockdown are being offered free counselling through Australia’s leading transport and logistics specialist, NTI Ltd.

NTI insures more than 14,000 customers and businesses across Victoria, and through its trauma counselling and employee assistance service provider, Assure Programs, is offering free sessions for transport and logistics workers throughout September and October.

CEO Tony Clark is experiencing the lockdown first-hand and said the counselling sessions were a continuation of NTI’s commitment to supporting the health and well being of those who keep Australia moving.

“It has been a very uncertain time and we want to show those in Victoria that we are here to help,” he said.

“We know lockdown is affecting everyone differently and we would encourage anyone who might need assistance to reach out.

“For many, it will be the first time they are accessing support like this, but we want them to know that support and a listening ear is there for them.

“Sessions can be conducted via phone or Skype and are, of course, completely confidential.”

NTI already offers counselling support to customers following a claim but wanted to extend that reach to all Victorian customers, as well as Victorian insurance partners, across NTI’s entire brand and product portfolio.

Recently NTI was announced as a top-tier partner of Healthy Heads in Trucks and Sheds  a not-for-profit foundation focused on delivering better mental health outcomes in the road transport and logistics industries.
