posted by TrueNorth and TSA (Truckers Service Association) on Thursday, July 16, 2015

This week, Transport Topics, "newspaper of trucking and freight transportation," released the 2015 Top 100 For-Hire Carriers in the nation.  TrueNorth is proud to note that many of the organizations and their drivers on this list are counted among those we insure.   

TrueNorth Transportation offers the following lines of service for our carriers and their drivers:

Fleet: Insurance for the Independent Contractor/Owner Operator

We recognized long ago that companies utilizing mixed capacity or asset light structures have a much more complex risk profile than that of the employee-based operator. This is why we have built our practice to specifically assist these mixed capacity and asset light fleets in navigating the national transportation risk landscape. We've done this by focusing on and strategically coordinating four key areas of organizational risk:

  • Legal & Complaince
  • Safety & Driver Capacity
  • Administrative Processes & Technologies
  • Risk Finance & Transfer

Primary: Insurance for our Corporate Clients

TrueNorth's Enterprise Risk Management program is based on the common goal of driving down cost of risk on a long-term, sustainable basis; so, not only is your company properly protected, your resources are free to focus on achieving your business objectives.  Learn more about our expanded capabilities in the primary arena by visiting the TrueNorth Transportation website.

TrueNorth's TrueChoices

TrueChoices is the most comprehensive independent contractor (IC) benefits resource in the transportation industry. We are proud to advertise TrueNorth as a solution with many programs that address all IC protection needs.
