Volume 3 – Number 7 – July 1, 2021

As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day 2021, all of us with Team PFA wish all of you – our valued customers and colleagues in the transportation and logistics industry – a happy and safe Fourth of July holiday weekend. Remember to protect your cargo, be mindful of the heat, and make sure to spend time with family and friends. This is the time to be appreciative of the can-do attitude and resilience of not only our nation, but of our transportation community from coast-to-coast. Here’s to thriving in the weeks and months to come. And to our many Canadian customers from north of the border, happy Canada Day today! We can’t wait for our border – the longest line of friendship in the world – to fully reopen for business in the near future.


Are your Shippers requiring insurance coverages and you feel like you can’t afford it? Let PFA give you a quote! We have premium financing options available to help you manage your cash flow as you grow your business. Email us at or call us at 800-595-2615. Remember that we are not only the nation’s largest provider of BMC-84s/BMC-85s, but we have a dedicated Transportation Insurance division providing some of the best coverages available today – and backed by specialists who understand what it takes to not only protect your business, but ensure your success.

Hello Motor Carriers! If you are required to use an Electronic Logging Device (ELD), not only should you make sure you are compliant, but you should check as to whether you may be eligible for a discount on your trucker’s insurance because of your ELD. Call us at PFA – we’ll tell you more about it. We offer trucker’s insurance in many states and freight broker insurance in all 50 states – and it’s all backed by the best in customer service!

Knowledge is power! And sometimes, all it takes is the right question to give you the understanding you need to make the most of any business opportunity or to ensure that your business is properly protected 24/7. If you want a sampler of some of the most commonly asked questions that we get each and every day from our customers, check out our Transportation Logistics 101 - FAQs on Freight Brokering on our website. And if you have other questions that need answers fast, email us at We are here to help!

If you are a new Freight Broker trying to navigate both the challenges and the opportunities that exist to grow your business, you could consider a training course. We have several great resources that we can recommend to you.
Email us at or call us at 800-595-2615. We
strongly recommend even a refresher training course on the best practices that define the most successful Freight Brokers. What better time to consider new
initiatives than during this bounce-back period from the challenges of the
past 15 to 18 months?
The seller’s market for used trucks remains strong as demand continues to remain feverish. You might be surprised by how hot the market is going into the Fourth of July weekend. You can learn more here. Also, in case you missed our pilot episodes of the new PFA Protects: The Transportation Insurance & Surety Services Podcast, check out these two great chats with Daniel Larson, Chief Executive Officer of PFA Transportation Insurance & Surety Services.

And stay tuned for more pilot episodes later this summer!
We are proud of our nation on this Independence Day weekend and as we mentioned off the top, we’re also very proud to be part of such an important community in transportation and logistics. We’re also very appreciative of the efforts of all of those in the business – Freight Brokers, Freight Forwarders, Shippers, Motor Carriers and others in the 3PL space – to keep us and our economy moving. Special shoutout to the truck drivers who we so depend on 12 months of the year. The team at PFA salutes you on this Fourth of July weekend!
