Town Hall Series The Future of Commercial Trucking ClearConnect

Since 2014, losses from commercial trucking insurance claims have been on the rise. The severity of loss has accelerated and rates have nearly doubled, creating a real problem for the future of the industry.

With a loss ratio over 100 for over 7 years, how will the industry be able to sustain itself?

In response to this very real threat to motor carriers, drivers, insurers, agents, and retailers, ClearConnect invites you to join us in a Town Hall Series to transparently discuss why this is happening, the potential risk to the industry, and potential solutions with subject matter experts who are advocating change.

From solutioning ideas to help carriers become more selective in the drivers they employ to developing education for insurers to become more aware of the risks to creating an overall standard of excellence for the industry, nothing will be left on the table.

Panelists will drill down into key issues to help the industry avoid negligence and propose a foundation to create a safer, more efficient commercial trucking industry together.
