Cover Whale Insurance Solutions, a provider of commercial trucking insurance, has announced a strategic agreement with CoverWallet, a digital insurance platform for small business owners, under the global professional services firm Aon.
The collaboration combines Cover Whale's trucking insurance capacity with CoverWallet's distribution strengths, the companies said in a news release.
The primary focus of this partnership is to cater to the insurance needs of independent owner-operators and small fleet trucking customers, a segment of the insurance market that has historically been underserved. To achieve this, Cover Whale will leverage its advanced telematics and proprietary quoting and binding technology to provide fast and customizable coverage to truck drivers.
“As we continue to grow, we are continuously looking for ways to connect with more drivers and fleets across the country,” said Dan Abrahamsen, CEO of Cover Whale. “Our top priority has always been keeping the roads safe. This agreement allows us to simplify the insurance process for truckers looking for fast, customizable coverage that helps them drive more, earn more, save more, and focus on the road.”
“We are thrilled to work with Cover Whale to support independent owner-operator and small fleet trucking customers with their insurance needs,” said Jeff Borgman, director of transportation programs for CoverWallet. “This collaboration enhances our offerings for commercial trucking customers, and we look forward to introducing them to innovative solutions as an additional avenue to safety, helping them make better-informed decisions about their insurance coverage.”
Earlier this year, Cover Whale partnered with TrustedChoice.com, a digital marketing platform for independent agents and brokers.
