Cover Whale expands capabilities to include insurance for intermodal trucking carriers
Commercial trucking insurer Cover Whale announced its participation in the Uniform Intermodal Interchange and Facilities Access Agreement (UIIA), a program administered by the Intermodal Association of North America (IANA). Through the agreement, Cover Whale-insured truck drivers can now accept loads at US ocean ports and help relieve some of the country’s supply chain burdens.
Cover Whale policyholders now can be covered for liability and trailer interchange related to intermodal equipment. With more than 14,000 intermodal trucking companies participating, 95 percent of North American intermodal equipment interchanges are managed under UIIA.
“At a time of heightened delivery needs, trying to mitigate these concerns is a priority item on our agenda. By adhering to the UIIA, policyholders can now accept loads at large ports across the country to help alleviate supply chain shortages and drive the economy forward. Expanding our capabilities also doubles down on our core strength of streamlining the process for our agents and providing more coverage options.” – Dan Abrahamsen, CEO of Cover Whale.
