Amwins Underwriting has announced a collaboration with Lancer Insurance Company, the commercial auto division of Core Specialty.
The new carrier relationship will enhance two key trucking programs provided through Amwins Transportation Underwriters (ATU), Amwins said. The business will be written on StarStone National Insurance Company paper.
The two programs are ATU’s Advantage program and its exclusive environmental transportation offering. Advantage is an exclusive program distributed through select retail brokers, focused on motor carriers with up to 25 units and offering coverage designed specifically for the trucking sector. ATU’s environmental transportation offering provides coverage for transportation clients who handle hazardous materials and bulk environmental commodities, Amwins said in a news release.
Lancer has provided specialty insurance products to businesses and commercial transportation companies throughout the country for more than 35 years. The company offers an array of insurance products for passenger transportation vehicles, small fleet and owner/operator long-haul truckers, rental vehicles, small to mid-sized commercial auto and garage businesses, and more.
“We are excited with this new exclusive relationship to provide coverage across ATU’s portfolio of trucking programs,” said Ryan Armijo, president of Amwins Underwriting. “Our strategic relationship supports existing business and also provides a solid platform to grow and develop new business. Lancer focuses on the unique needs of commercial transportation policyholders, and on delivering extraordinary service and support to help them succeed. Together, we are poised to deliver unparalleled insurance solutions to our clients, helping them win.”
