Volume 4 – Number 3 – March 1st, 2022

There are multiple reasons why you should choose PFA as the provider of your BMC-84 or BMC-85. Yet the most important is that only a PFA surety instrument can ensure that your business interests are fully and truly protected – from start to finish! Operating and offering our own Claims Department allows us to deliver unparalleled knowledge in claims service. Our team here at PFA handles all communications, verifications and investigations relating to claims. In addition, our extensive legal expertise in the specifics of Freight Broker regulations allows us to expedite legitimate claims and quickly identify non-valid claims. That kind of skill set allows us to minimize the impact on your bond or cash reserves. There’s a reason why we’re the nation’s largest provider of BMC-84s/BMC-85s. To find out more, call us today at 1-800-595-2615 or email us at


Are you doing a name change for your company with the FMCSA? If you are – or are thinking about it -- don’t forget to notify us and your BOC-3 provider as well. This is just a reminder that the FMCSA automatically issues a notice of cancellation with a name change submission, so the bond and BOC-3 must be re-filed.


As mentioned above, having an in-house Claims Department is a big differentiator for PFA when it comes to BMC-84s/BMC-85s. PFA CEO Daniel Larson explains what it means to Freight Broker clients. It’s one of the new episodes of PFA TV and an easy 4-minute and 30-second watch and listen. While you’re at it, check out the entire library of PFA TV videos. We’re here to give you what you need, when you need it…and that includes the tools, resources and information you need to make the right decisions on transportation insurance and surety services.


Our team at PFA Transportation Insurance & Surety Services loves saving our clients time and money. As CEO Daniel Larson points out, you can do both by bundling your transportation insurance with your surety bonds. He explains how in a recent pilot episode of PFA Protects: The Transportation Insurance and Surety Podcast.

It’s that crazy time of year again: Tax season.

The team at PFA now offers special Errors and Omissions Insurance for Tax Preparers.  It’s a coverage that is designed to give you the peace of mind that you won’t be putting your hard-earned fees at risk. We know that we can make a difference by serving tax preparers during this most important time of your annual business cycle. Give us a call today at 1-800-595-2615 or email us at and we’ll answer any questions you might have.
All of us have a vested interest in the transportation industry. We’re either proud to be part of it or we’re very aware of how important it is for the American economy and our way of life. Thank you for all of our professional drivers – the men and women who literally work to keep our economic engines going across all 50 states.
Making sure that March roars in like a lion is often simply a state of mind. It’s no different in the transportation industry in general and in the world of Freight Brokers, Freight Forwarders, Motor Carriers and others in the field. We’re still three weeks away from spring, but why not put the extra spring in our steps now? Is this the time for that new business opportunity to be tackled head on? How about a major push on capacity-building, beginning with team-building exercises, even if they’re done in this virtual world? Taking that “can do” attitude will set the tone for the year ahead. Keep on trucking!
