The trucking and transportation industries play a vital role in our economy, particularly in states with coastal access like Alabama, Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi. With major seaports located along their coasts, significant agricultural industries, and growing populations demanding higher and higher volumes of commercial and consumer products, companies in these states’ trucking and transportation industries – and others throughout the United States – are poised to experience major growth in the years to come.
Of course, these companies face significant liability risks as well, and their insurers are facing increasingly high demands.
