About CAB

CAB LogoFor over 70 years, Central Analysis Bureau, Inc. has been an important part of the underwriting plan for the commercial auto and inland marine insurance industry. With its unique understanding of all aspects of the trucking industry, CAB has developed a proprietary rating system which, based on a series of specific ratios and equations, is utilized to analyze a motor carrier’s financial records to determine the financial strength of that carrier. For years, the name CAB has been synonymous with financial analysis, and an acceptable CAB rating is a prerequisite for many underwriters.

Happy Fall. Hope you had as great a summer as we did here on the Jersey Shore. But the temps are dropping and so we head back inside to work.  During this fall season training is high on the agenda for many companies.  We remind you that CAB is pleased to assist you in presentations on training and use of the CAB services, as well as information on industry trends.

I hope to see many of you at the IMUA meeting in Atlanta on October 9th where I will be presenting with Ben Armistead on Interactive Transportation & Logistics Underwriting.  Ira will be presenting at TIDA on October 27th on the use of CSA data and Shuie will be there too! Tiana will be presenting at the IMUA Mid-Atlantic Advisory Group "Social" on October 27th.  Stop in and visit.  We are also available to meet with you before or after these sessions for a more detailed discussion on the services of CAB and what we can do to assist your company in properly analyzing the risk. Please email to set an appointment if you are interested in further discussions.

This month we report:

DRIVER FATALITIES - The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries confirmed that more than 700 heavy and tractor-trailer drivers died as a result of occupational injuries last year, the highest since 2008.  This industry led the pack with 28% of all fatalities. 1,289 workers in the transport industry died on the job in 2014, a 3 percent increase from 2013 and the highest total since 2008. Nearly two-thirds of deaths in the transportation and material moving goods industry involved drivers /sales workers and truck drivers. Across all industries, 40 percent of fatal workplace injuries were the result of transportation incidents, up slightly from 2013. More than half of fatal transport incidents were “roadway” incidents.
