Volume 3 – Number 6 – June 1, 2021

We’re driving into June with the reminder that the Military Surface Deployment and Distribution Command (SDDC) Freight Carrier Registration Program remains open to interested applicants! Keep in mind that you must have uninterrupted authority with the FMCSA for at least three years. The team here at PFA can provide you with both the bond AND insurance requirements to become a qualified Transportation Service Provider with the US Department of Defense. Many of our customers have had great success with this program. We encourage you to consider this additional avenue to build your business. You can find out more here.


Do you have any transportation bonds coming up for renewal? If you do, it’s time for a quote from PFA. We may be able to save you some money! Whether you’re a freight broker or motor carrier, remember that PFA can take care of ANY surety bond that you might need. Although we are the nation’s leading provider of the $75,000 BMC-84/BMC-85 freight broker bond, we also offer every type of surety bond as well as transportation insurance. Customs bonds, DOD/SDDC bonds, Fuel Tax bonds, PrePass/Toll bonds - we have them all. Give us a call at 800-595-2615 and ask for Pam before you renew your existing surety bonds.

PFA has launched the first season of our PFA Protects podcast! We hope that you already had the chance to listen to PFA CEO Daniel Larson in Episode 1, where he discussed the roots and origins of PFA and explained why adding freight broker authority to a motor carrier operation can be so beneficial. Now’s the time to subscribe to the PFA Protects podcast and download it today on the occasion of the premier of Pilot Episode 2 which features great information on the different insurance coverages that shippers are requiring of freight brokers in order to secure a contract. PFA can let you know which of the coverages are the most important and we offer ALL of them. Let us know about the topics and issues you want to see raised on PFA Protects: The Transportation Insurance & Surety Services Podcast.

We are working on increasing the number of states in which we can write trucking insurance because so many of our freight broker customers have a motor carrier side as well. We just added Virginia! Call us today for a quote. Our program is currently available in these states: AL, AZ, CO, GA, ID, IL, NC, NM, NV, SC, TX, UT, VA, and WY. We’re also excited to offer all of our freight broker insurance products in all 50 states!

In a recent episode of PFA TV, our CEO Daniel Larson speaks to the impact that technology has had on all segments of the logistics industry and outlines the many advantages arising from bundling transportation insurance with surety requirements for freight brokers. It’s a lot of helpful information in 4 minutes and 8 seconds! And if you haven’t had the chance, check out the entire series of PFA TV video chats. They’re online to help you protect your business and ensure your success!
Information is power and that’s certainly been truer than ever over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why it was good to see and hear that at the American Trucking Association’s Mid-Year Management Session, trucking executives expressed optimism as the nation recovers from the pandemic and strives to return to normal. Read more here. It is sure to fuel your confidence for the summer and fall ahead.
Shifting into high gear for the month of June and the beginning of summer on June 21st means that we’re counting down to Independence Day and the Fourth of July. This year’s Fourth of July should be one of the best celebrations in recent memory as people plan to come together like we haven’t been able to in more than 15 months. It’s also a good time to remember all of the drivers, support staff and others who helped keep the US trucking during the pandemic and helped bring us to this point where we’re emerging strong in the transportation industry. Professionally, make sure you’re prepared to work around the July 4th holiday. And personally, make plans to be with your loved ones, friends and associates to celebrate our nation’s birthday.
