Preview: NBIS at the SC&RA Specialized Transportation Symposium

Bill Hebron gives a preview of NBIS’ upcoming presentation at the Specialized Transportation Symposium.

As you might know, NBIS is committed to serving our insureds and the greater crane and rigging, heavy haul, and concrete pumping sectors as industry defenders

Because we’ve done the work and been around a long time, we realize that the nature of your business is complex and subject to frequent (and often significantly challenging) permitting, compliance, and regulatory changes. 

Of the three industries we serve, it seems safe to say that specialized transportation is currently facing the widest variety of challenges and changes. The spreading legalization of marijuana and what that means for managing commercial fleets and drivers, the FMCSA’s Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse, OS/OW Permitting Changes in New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, and Oklahoma, the final phase of the ELD Mandate, infrastructure changes…the list goes on. 

As we embark on a new year, we are committed to helping you stay on top of what’s happening in the industry. Next month, we’ll be presenting at the SC&RA’s annual Specialized Transportation Symposium, taking place February 18-21 at the Sheraton Charlotte Hotel. 

As you might expect, technology is a hot topic in specialized transportation right now. I’ll be partnering with Jeffrey Haynes and James Stovall (both of USI Insurance Services) on a presentation that aims to help you manage organizational technology and data as they pertain to insurance policy coverages. 

Expect to learn new ways to think about your business data and technology tracking services. I’ll review the public data on your CAB report and how other companies review and use it, and we will also talk in detail about the way the information your company supplies is understood and used by claims executives and underwriters. Technology is a key consideration in these scenarios, and our presentation will help you learn how to leverage it, instead of allowing it to be used against you. 

Jeff and James will explore in detail how your insurance agent can help you manage the risk that technology creates via transparency of information. 

The full Specialized Transportation Symposium schedule includes four days of breakout sessions and panels on a wide range of topics pressing to the industry. We hope to see you there!
