Transportation

Your vehicles carry precious cargo—the products they haul and the people driving them.

We help protect both. Higginbotham has insurance and risk management professionals with expertise in the transportation and hauling business who maximize every dollar you spend on insurance, safety and loss prevention. Whether an owner-operator or motor carrier, small or large fleet, we help with your long and short haul trucking risks.

Your company is as unique as the products it hauls. So, we audit your safety materials, training programs, record-keeping practices and field operations to identify your unique exposures and offer insurance coverage for trucking risks.

Risk Management

  • Safety manuals
  • Onsite driver training

  • Mirror adjustment station setup
  • Safety committee participation
  • Fleet policies
