RLI Transportation, a division of RLI Insurance Co., announced the expansion of its small fleet trucking program to include new retail agents.
The program had previously been limited to existing, appointed agents. The expansion is intended to provide more retail agents with direct access to RLI.
According to RLI Transportation Vice President of Underwriting Daniel Meyer, the change comes at the urging of the company’s producers. “They want to bypass the wholesale channel. By cutting out the middleman, our retail agents experience a streamlined quote process and ultimately a faster quote turnaround,” he said.
Additionally, the program is now available to truckload and less-than-truckload carriers with up to 19 units conducting the following operations: dry van, refrigerated, auto-haulers, dry tank (non-hazardous), expedited delivery, and moving and storage (excluding warehousing).
Lines offered under the small fleet trucking program include: auto liability, physical damage, general liability, non-trucking auto liability, trailer interchange and following form excess.
The small fleet trucking program excludes Alaska, Hawaii, Mass. and La.
