A retail agent who knew and trusted IAT’s paper connected with IAT partner CRC Transportation Binding on a new business opportunity with a 42-power unit fleet operation.  After approaching IAT for a quote and in IAT’s Pre-Quote Loss Control Assessment, Loss Control Representative Ed B. noticed the owner instituted improvements in their safety program that IAT previously recommended. The owner was appreciative of IAT’s thorough assessment and was interested in doing business with us if we were competitive. After reevaluating the business, IAT Underwriter Chip R. was able to confidently issue a competitive quote to secure their patronship.


IAT collaborated with CRC Transportation Binding to provide coverage for the motor carrier’s 42-power unit operation, identifying risk and helping our customer stay protected before their drivers even turned the ignition key.
