The State of Insurance in the Freight Industry


Carriers are experiencing significant strain when it comes to rising insurance costs, which have doubled in the past few years. Abnormally high accident rates—including those involving fatalities—and nuclear settlements with multi-million-dollar payouts are largely to blame and are impacting carriers of all sizes, in addition to their customers. Despite a rise in technologies that are designed to enhance safety, the economic impact of these skyrocketing rates is undeniable.


To discuss the impact of rising insurance rates and how companies can best position themselves to handle these costs, FreightWaves partnered with Spireon to host an hour-long webinar, where you can hear insights from Chris Henry, Vice President of Carrier Profitability and Program Manager for the TCA Profitability Program, as well as Andrew Ladebauche, Co-Founder and CEO of Reliance Partners. During this session, Henry and Ladebauche discuss:

  • Current market environment (insurance carriers in the market vs. exiting)
  • Excess insurance (umbrella) rates
  • Nuclear verdicts vs. higher-than-normal incident rates and the economic impact
  • The impact of the coronavirus on insurance rates
  • What happens when stock market support falls apart
  • Captive vs. traditional insurance markets
  • Future trends, including activity-based pricing for carriers
  • Brokerage liability

Cost of Ownership: Leasing vs. Buying


Fleet ownership has a number of benefits, but with those benefits come a number of associated costs, including maintenance, repairs and eventually replacement. Likewise, leasing provides a number of advantages for fleets as well, particularly for companies who don’t want to be exposed to the volatility associated with upswings and downswings in company financials. While both options have their pros and cons, how can companies make the decision that is best for them?


To address the pros and cons of buying versus leasing, FreightWaves and Spireon are partnering for an hour-long webinar featuring Dean Croke, Chief Insights Officer for FreightWaves, and Brent Russell, Executive Vice President, Contract Leasing Corp. During the presentation, the speakers will address:

  • Hidden costs associated with leasing and purchasing vehicles
  • Immediate and long-term benefits of both options
  • Results from a recent survey on leasing vs. buying
  • Questions to ask to make the best decision for your fleet

Time Is Money: Managing Detention More Profitably


Detention is one of the largest concerns facing drivers and fleets today, costing both time and money. In fact, DAT research revealed that 63 percent of drivers spend more than three hours waiting for their trucks to be loaded or unloaded on average, often leading to them missing subsequent loads as a result. As the adage goes, if the wheels aren’t turning, drivers aren’t earning.


Whether due to inefficiency or excess supply, detention has very real consequences for drivers and companies alike. To explore how companies can work to reduce the effects of detention on their drivers and the bottom line, Spireon and FreightWaves are partnering to host a one-hour webinar, where we will hear key insights from three leading experts, including:

  • SONAR data and charts on what is happening in the market
  • How leading companies are managing detention billing
  • Real-world examples of how companies can work to minimize the effects of detention.
  • And more
