Risk Management

The primary focus of McGriff Risk Management Transportation Practice is to create and deliver risk solutions and service to transportation clients. Pressure on transportation companies come from every angle – rising fuel costs; driver recruitment & retention; governmental regulation; safety & compliance and last but not least high insurance and claims costs. McGriff's Risk Management’s team meets those challenges for our customers through our experience and expertise. Our team analyzes all aspects of risk for our clients from operational to safety and financial risks. We then develop a forward looking plan with our clients to create solutions that avoid, mitigate or transfer the risk.

We create our solutions through services such as:

  • Root Cause Analysis– A comprehensive review of losses for root cause which is tied back to operational risks and safety solutions.
  • Safety Benchmarking – A Safety Program that evaluates key fleet safety areas and benchmarks them against the best practices in the industry.
  • JoBehaviors – Recognizing that drive recruitment and retention is a critical issue to all trucking companies, we have partnered with JoBehaviors to offer an on-line personality screening product that is tailored to the trucking industry.
  • Program Structure – Partnering with our client we determine the appropriate program structure. This can mean utilizing Self Insurance, Captives, traditional deductibles or funded deductibles.
  • Marketing – Unlike a lot of our competition, marketing is done by the team members working with our clients on a daily basis. This way your message and story gets accurately relayed to the insurance carriers. We maintain excellent relationships with all major insurance carriers in the Transportation sector and deal only with the decision makers.
  • Collateral Management – Collateral is a major concern for all transportation companies. We engage an extensive process wherein we conduct an actuarial review of our clients losses, require the insurance carrier to provide their actuarial analysis and negotiate the difference. We then engage with the insurance carrier’s Credit department to ensure you receive the maximum credit. Throughout this process we also look at alternative forms of collateral including Surety, Trusts, property, etc.
  • Claims Consulting – Our claims consulting services include: claims reviews – quarterly review of claims with your claims provider; claims advocacy – we engage with you, the insurance carrier and third parties in large complex claims, we utilize our claims professionals and attorneys on staff; TPA oversight and RFP’s, we can assist in overseeing your TPA and/or conduct RPF’s for TPA services.
  • Core Service Requirements – Timely and accurate management of day to day services including: Certificates of Insurance; Auto ID Cards; Contract Review; Regulatory Compliance.
