Burns & Burns Insurance hosted Brad Lloyd, CLCS, CPIA from Acuity Insurance to teach classes about trucking insurance on September 15th, 21st, and 22nd 2021. Brad visited the Bradford, Mercer, and Clarion locations, respectively. Brad is the Territory Director of Western Pennsylvania for Acuity Insurance. The sessions were intended to provide knowledge and more information on Acuity’s trucking product. This helped to better educate B&B agents and servicers about the complex trucking industry and how to best insure trucking clients.
Brad Lloyd also shared some interesting facts during the class about the current state of the trucking industry. In 2019, 11.84 billion tons of freight were transported by trucks, representing 72.5% of total tonnage via truck. Due to the high demand and shortage of drivers, salaries and insurance are expected to increase, as well as claims. Acuity’s number one business product is contractors, but trucking is their number 2. In fact, trucking is actually the number one class of business in PA for Acuity Insurance.
