A USI Transportation client was having problems with their Hours of Service and Driver Logs causing inquiries from the USDOT and making some of their large shipper clients nervous. USI’s Loss Control Specialists extensively reviewed the account and helped create a Corrective Action report to address USDOT concerns. USI provided sample documents and peer comparisons to substantiate key action items. The Corrective Action report was accepted by the USDOT, preventing regulatory action against the client enabling them to retain over $1 Million in potential lost revenue from shippers threating to leave. USI further leveraged the report with insurance carriers helping the client avoid premium increases of over $80,000 annually.


USI’s Transportation team evaluated the losses for a 100 power unit trucking company as part of a due diligence review. Despite good loss experience relative to industry peers, the Company’s premiums increased every year. Leveraging USI’s casualty resource team, historic loss data was analyzed to develop an accurate view of expected future loss performance. The result demonstrated that the pricing increases were not justified. USI built pricing expectations based on the empirical data, and negotiated a substantially lower cost with underwriters. The final terms provided over $90,000 in premium savings. USI also compared the client’s contractual requirements against their insurance policies and worked with carriers to expand coverage terms to bring the Company into compliance with their shipping contracts.
