Is A Captive the Right Insurance Solution for You?

Dan Cook, Practice Leader at TrueNorth, emphasizes the importance of knowing if your company will benefit from an insurance captive. With the ongoing hurdles in the transportation industry such as labor shortage, high inflation, and unpredictable freight rates, it is hard to stay competitive in this market. The group discusses the different types of captives such as single-parent, group, and heterogenous captives.

Some questions to ask yourself:

  1. How well does your company perform compared to others in the industry?
  2. What is the risk pool?
  3. How strong is your company at mitigating and managing risk?

Industry specialists featured in this discussion:

  • Host, Sean Garney, Co-Director at Scopelitis Transportation Consulting
  • Co-Host, Steve Keppler, Co-Director at Scopelities Transportation Consulting
  • Guest, Dan Cook, Principle Practice Leader at TrueNorth Companies
