We will start off the conference with the state of the trucking industry with focus on Washington and the legislative and regulatory changes upon us. How is the changing environment as a result of COVID changing the perception of the motor carrier and how is the insurance industry reacting and adapting to these changes? Our conference would be incomplete without finishing up the morning with Dan Murray and the ATRI research results.
After lunch we address coverage, how the MCS-90 protects the public when there is no coverage and upcoming changes to the Motor Carrier Form. Court rulings giving insight on how to better defend our insureds will also be addressed and the technology that can help with defense. We will finish off the day with new driver hiring requirements.
Friday morning starts with a hot topic that is forefront in all of today’s news, Cyber Liability and the cyber exposures of a motor carrier. Keeping to current subjects, we will finish off the morning with technology for motor carriers. What technology is out there and how will it affect coverage and defense.
The final session will focus on drivers of commercial vehicles. From the driver shortage to demographics to onboarding to how drivers actions affect an insured’s safety records which in turn affect the ability to secure loads will be examined. What do underwriters look for in driver hiring guidelines and how they affect selection, availability and pricing. We will end the conference with the driver as the tortfeasor in the crash. How the drivers actions determine how the insurance company will respond.
In addition we will be offering courses on cryptocurrency, final mile exposures, big data and the independent contractor issues.
