Transportation Insurance Update: May 2023.
SWAN News Welcome,

As the summer nears and activity increases, businesses are stocking up on inventory. Shipment frequency will begin to increase, especially August and into the fall, as businesses are getting ready for the holidays. While this means more of the usual trucking contracts, we know freight rates can be low for regular hauls.

Some of the more profitable transportation opportunities come from intermodal shipping opportunities like working with shipping ports. Finding drivers for port-related contracts is a common ask, as they generally produce more dollars per mile. They can also keep drivers local so they don't have to drive cross-country, making (hopefully) everyone's lives easier.

Naturally, there are compliance standards to meet before your business can contract with ports, and that's where SWAN can help. This month we spotlight Amy Luong, our Transportation Producer, who specializes in intermodal shipping and more. Scroll below to learn more about her white glove approach to helping your business grow.

Amy and the SWAN team have a close relationship with the port of Los Angeles. Getting compliant with their certificate management system can be difficult for those unfamiliar with it. We can help you get compliant and on the road while others struggle with the system.

Not only does compliance help your business grow, it keeps you and your drivers safe. Amy and members of the SWAN team recently returned from a couple of industry conferences (recaps below). Connecting with industry authorities around changes in regulation and new technology enable us to best inform your safety and success.

We value your trust and partnership and remain committed to your best interests. 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
