Transportation Insurance Update: April 2023.
Chris Mahlberg, TRS Welcome,

On behalf of the entire team at SWAN, welcome to the April edition of our newsletter! We are committed to keeping you informed of developments happening in our industry as we strive to provide you with the highest level of service and expertise.

This month we celebrated the work anniversaries of several team members:

Amy Luong, Transportation Specialist: 3 years
Kevin Mealey, Producer, Imperial Valley: 2 Years
Rafael Negron, Claims Manager: 1 year

Working with people I know and like has a profound and positive effect on me, and I know it translates into the best experience for our partners and clients the same. I also think it's important to share who's helping you get the best rates, maximize driver safety and compliance, expedite claims and more, so you have complete confidence in us.

In this edition, get to know Rafael and learn more about him joining SWAN Account Manager Michael Goldsmith at the upcoming Motor Carrier Insurance Education Foundation (MCIEF) Western Conference in Phoenix.

Don't miss the video messages from Kevin Mealey, SWAN's Producer - Imperial Valley, sharing how we can help you attract and retain cross-border drivers. Another example how our boutique approach can help you grow your business in new ways.

We value your trust and partnership and remain committed to being the insurance company of choice that has your best interest in mind. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our goal is to help you Sleep Well At Night!

Thank you,
Chris Mahlberg

Meet Team SWAN Meet Rafael Negron
SWAN's Claims Manager

Traditionally, insurance companies refer you to the phone number on your policy and wish you the best on filing a claim. Those claims managers are typically managing dozens of people at once and may take days or even a week to reply, often with an incomplete response.

That approach didn't work for us.
Enter, Rafael.

Rafael is SWAN's in-house claims manager and he makes our clients' lives significantly better. Having joined SWAN from an insurance company, he knows how claims work on the carrier side as well.

From helping you file claims more completely to getting you reimbursed as quickly as possible, Rafael's unparalleled attentiveness helps our clients sleep well at night. He recently visited a client in Mexico to help them complete claims paperwork.

Of Dominican and Puerto Rican descent, Rafael is fluent in both English and Spanish. He used to be a math tutor, so you know he'll get your numbers right. He is an avid fan of travel, has two dogs, and loves all sports, especially the San Diego Padres. (He claims he once gave over 10,000 high fives after they won a playoff game.)

Should you have any questions, we invite you to contact Rafael.

Cross-Border Drivers

Recruiting and retaining cross-border and binational drivers is increasingly difficult in today's job market.

It can be even harder for smaller companies to compete for talent since they traditionally don't have as many contracts as larger carriers.

While most insurance companies don't even cover cross-border drivers, we at SWAN consider this our specialty and know how to get drivers approved!

Kevin Mealey, SWAN's Producer - Imperial Valley, shares how SWAN can help you navigate this conundrum. Click to watch in the language of your choice and contact us if you'd like to explore how to expand your business.
