The unit, to be headed by Lentz Merisier, director of transportation solutions, will provide a broad portfolio of insurance solutions to trucking operations of all sizes, from major fleets to owner-operators, the company says.
AIG Transportation Solutions says it initially will offer worker’s compensation, general liability, automobile liability, excess automobile liability, environmental/pollution, excess casualty and occupational accident insurance to customers. The unit also will offer extensive property, infrastructure and mobile property coverage of all types to protect an insured’s cargo and mitigate the financial risk of physical damage to their fleets. A dedicated team of claims and loss control consultants will service the customer claims.
“The specialized brokers handling the complex requirements of the trucking industry can now come to AIG Transportation Solutions to access multiple lines of coverage for trucking fleets to keep them on the road,” says Steve Yockel, president of AIG Risk Management, Transportation. “We will work with our producers to provide a ‘one-stop-shopping approach’ as it relates to the delivery of products and services which satisfy the specific needs of the customer.”
