The organisation, which is a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, aims to utilise the partnership to allow operators to easily get insurance quotes, purchase policies online, and generate insurance certificates using a digital portal, ensuring they can keep moving freight without interruptions.
Joe Nibley, Vice President, Milepost, said: “One of the biggest challenges that an owner-operator faces when they want to start their own authority is getting insurance.
“Truckstop’s extensive marketplace and operator verification network allows us to bring reliable insurance to vetted, independent carriers who are looking to secure their fleet. By removing the guesswork that often comes with selecting insurance, we’re able to help get trucks on the road faster and safer.”
Small carriers and independent owner-operators simply need to visit the Truckstop Partner Marketplace, before they will be given access to Milepost’s streamlined insurance quotation and purchasing process.
Within 15 minutes, a prospect can have a quote to jumpstart their operations with Milepost or switch their insurance to Milepost as a way to save along their bottom line.
Alan Alberto, Director of Partnerships & Alliances, Truckstop, said: “Truckstop remains committed to reducing risks in the freight transaction process, all the way down to the insurance level.
“Our partnership with Milepost provides our customers with more options and enhances their access to the types of coverage and coverage levels that many users desire.”
