Transportation Insurance Update: March 2024.
SWAN News Welcome,

The vibrant season of spring brings a flurry of challenges and opportunities in the transportation industry. At SWAN, we are committed to keeping you informed about the latest developments that may impact your operations.

Trucker Safety and High Value Loads
A list of locations in the US where trucks shouldn't stop has been making the rounds online and leaving people stunned. Click here to view the "High Value Load - Do Not Stop" list and check out this article for more information.

Produce Season and Trucking Needs
We anticipate a surge in demand for cross-border and refrigerated trucking services, particularly as produce season kicks into high gear. Ensuring your cargo remains protected and delivered on time is critical and our team can help you safeguard assets and mitigate risks every step of the way.

Impact of Global Conflicts on Shipment Timing and Ports
Escalating global conflicts have raised concerns about potential disruptions to shipment timing and shipping ports. These conflicts may influence greater traffic towards the port of Los Angeles as shipping companies alter routes and delivery timing. More details and related opportunities below.

Industry Conferences and Knowledge Sharing
Members of the SWAN team recently returned from AgroBaja, having connected with leaders and experts surrounding all things farming and agriculture (recap below). Director of Transportation Marc Crawford will be speaking at TTA's RevUp 2024 Summer Symposium & Expo June 18-20 in Niagara Falls, New York. We will continue to share insights from our partners to help your business stay a step ahead while aligning our services to best serve your growth the same.

Celebrating New Beginnings
We are delighted to share the joyous news that one of our team members has welcomed a new addition to their family. We extend our heartfelt congratulations to SWAN Claims Manager Rafael Negron on the arrival of their baby girl! We know many of you have worked with Rafael and we look forward to supporting him as he embraces this new chapter.

With the spirit of renewal and growth spring brings, we reaffirm our unwavering commitment to fueling your success with integrity. Thank you for entrusting us with your insurance needs and please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Wishing you a prosperous and productive spring season ahead!

A Freight Waves in-depth Q&A with Flexport details how two key container shipping "chokepoints" - the Panama Canal and the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait in the Red Sea - are simultaneously under threat.

With traditionally East Coast bound cargo routed West, a possible fall season port workers strike in the US South/East, and the impact on timelines, there is potential to secure surge pricing contracts for providers who are ready.

While situations remain fluid, we are closely monitoring developments and remain committed to keeping your operations running smoothly, even in the face of geopolitical uncertainties.
