Transportation

Since the construction of the interstate system in the mid-twentieth century, trucking has become the primary source to transport freight. As a result, the country underwent decades of regulation and deregulation to improve and refine the trucking industry and the consumer. By the early 2000’s an estimated twenty-six million trucks were on the road hauling freight to almost every city in the country.


SIU has been in the transportation business for over 50 years and writes all types of commercial automobile and garage products. SIU now offers workers’ compensation coverage to compliment these other coverages. We have partnered with A-Rated national trucking carriers to offer transportation coverage for a wide variety of operations including local/long haul, parcel delivery, gas & oil dealers and even buses or limousines. We also write workers’ comp coverage for owner/operators through our new venture program.

We take safety seriously which is why our programs offer on-site loss control and claims management services as well as safety programs.

A supplemental is required for most submissions. Please reach out to our workers’ compensation underwriting team for more information.
