Over the years we have been asked by many of our customers why there is no central location in which insurers could report that payments have been made on behalf of a motor carrier solely as a result of cargo or auto filings. While report can be made to the FMCSA we understand that they take no action and third parties have no access to that information. In order to assist our subscribers we are considering implementing a program which would allow insurers to report on carriers where filing liability incurred. As our focus is always to make sure that you “Know Your Insured” the information would then be part of our database and underwriters who participate would have access to that information when considering a motor carrier for insurance.
In order to consider whether underwriters would be interested in such a program, we would ask that you e-mail us and let us know your thoughts. If the overall response is receptive we will move forward to design such a program. Please e-mail Jean Gardner, or simply reply to this report.
