Keeping Things Moving

From our inception in 1972, Eastern States has served a wide range of leading firms within the transportation industry.  We have helped numerous trucking companies, school bus and motor coach operators, transit systems, distributors, waste haulers and similar enterprises with their insurance and risk management needs.

This history of service and client satisfaction has given us a comprehensive overview of various insurance alternatives, as well as an established rapport with underwriters who focus on specific niches within the transportation field.  Our access to specialized providers of fleet insurance, motor truck cargo, warehouseman’s legal liability and other important coverages has enabled us to provide upgraded protection while reducing costs.  All the insurance programs created by Eastern States Insurance are provided by financially stable carriers with nationwide facilities to settle claims throughout North America.

Eastern States’ expertise in insuring school bus, motor coach and public livery companies provides those clients with many competitive advantages, such as summer suspension credits, composite rating and excess limits.  Additionally, we provide MVR services, co-ordinate loss control services and oversee the proper insurance filings.

Workers Compensation is yet another crucial and expensive area of coverage too often overlooked by transportation insurance providers – but never overlooked by Eastern States Insurance.  We use a wide variety of Workers Compensation alternatives such as retrospective rating, self-insured groups and deductible plans that save our clients premium dollars, while improving claims and loss control services.

The intensive claim services required by transportation firms have prompted us to develop personalized Fleet and Workers Compensation claims tracking systems.  Our in-house claims department integrates standard industry claims information with our own customized data to help clients pinpoint loss frequency and severity problems associated with drivers, routes or other criteria.  Those problems are then addressed, resulting in both short and long-term savings.
