Volume 3 – Number 8 – August 2, 2021

We’re headed into the so-called “Dog Days of Summer”, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get a head start on the post-Labor Day business cycle and the fall season. Before you know it, we’ll be gearing up for Thanksgiving and the biggest retail push of the year leading to the 2021 Christmas Season! Before you scoff at talking about Santa Claus in August, now’s the time to get ahead on the planning front, with your eye on the priorities that will help your business grow in what many are expecting to be a resurgent economy strengthened by bounce-back investor and consumer confidence. August and September are great months to update end of year plans so that you can finish strong on every front. Go for it! Our team at PFA Transportation Insurance & Surety Services is here to support you!


Not only do we subscribe to the notion that your time is money, we’re completely committed to helping you save both time and money as you put in place the building blocks of insurance and surety that go hand-in-hand with a growing business. Whether you’re a new or established Freight Broker, Freight Forwarder, or Motor Carrier, we can set you up with the best in coverage. And help you save time and money by bundling your transportation insurance needs with your surety requirements. Our Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Larson, is all over that in the latest episode of PFA Protects: The Transportation Insurance & Surety Services Podcast. Check out our pilot Episode 3, where he discusses how you can save money by bundling your Freight Broker bond with transportation insurance.

Even if you’re a new Motor Carrier company, we can help you get into the right insurance coverage at the right price for the right reasons! Truckin’ right, we offer trucker’s insurance in many states and it’s all backed by the best in customer service. We also have a program in several states for Motor Carriers with at least three years of operating authority. Let us give you a quote! And ICYMI last month, you may not know whether you are compliant or not when it comes to using ELDs. We’re here to remind you may be required to use an Electronic Logging Device …but that can also mean eligibility for a discount on your trucker’s insurance. Call us today at 1-800-595-2615 or email us at

Great businesses – whether you are a Freight Broker or Motor Carrier – know how to focus on not only increasing revenues, but reducing expenses (as per the time and money savings from bundling outlined above and in our PFA Protects Podcast). Best practices also include taking advantage of the right kind of financing if you’re worried about cash flow at this time of year. Be sure to ask us about premium financing opportunities!

Best wishes to our family of resilient leaders in the transportation sector – Freight Brokers, Freight Forwarders, Shippers, Motor Carriers and others in the 3PL space. We know you’ve driven especially hard these past 15 to 18 months and that it hasn’t exactly been business as usual for big chunks of that time. All the more reason to make sure you take some downtime to recharge those batteries. We know you’re always on the road professionally. We hope you can book some time to get out on the road personally. Even a few long weekends will help you make the most of summer! They’re good for you and your team…and a terrific way to ensure your team is energized heading into the fall season.
