Our Approach – Risk Management vs. Insurance
Risk Management is more than insurance – it’s the process of minimizing the adverse effects of accidental losses. A well-designed Risk Management solution can lower your losses and lower your premium costs. We have years of experience in making Risk Finance and Risk Control work for the transportation industry.
- Risk Finance focuses on determining the right coverages, limits and deductible amount giving you financial security and optimize cash flow.
- Risk Control focuses on analyzing losses, determining how to prevent them, and mitigating the cost once they do occur.
Traditional Insurance Programs
- Auto Liability
- Physical Damage
- Contingent Auto and Cargo for Freight Brokers and Freight Forwarders
- General Liability
- Workers Compensation
- Excess Liability
- Additional Policies and Endorsements as appropriate
Alternative Risk Financing
Alternative Risk Financing programs known as Captives and Self-Insured Retentions (SIRs) offer you the opportunity to benefit from your safety efforts. More specifically, if you don’t suffer significant losses, a portion of the premium you pay, along with investment income, may be returned to you. We have significant experience helping clients determine if an Alternative Risk Financing program is right for them.
- Better operators band together to share risk and reward –creating their own exclusive insurance group and insulating themselves from poorer operators and the market
- In effect, group captive participants exit the cyclical traditional market and typically realize significant long-term savings and better protection
Self-Insured Retentions (SIRs)
- Insured retains predictable losses and losses that can be controlled. Transfer unpredictable and catastrophic losses
