Revolutionizing the Road: Amwins Underwriting Accelerates Trucking Program Excellence Through Adding Lancer Insurance Company

Amwins Underwriting today announced a strategic collaboration with Lancer Insurance Company, the commercial auto division of Core Specialty, as a new carrier relationship to enhance two key trucking programs provided through Amwins Transportation Underwriters (ATU). The business will be written on StarStone National Insurance Company paper backed by Lancer’s industry-leading claims handling.

The two programs include ATU’s Advantage program, which is an exclusive program distributed through a select group of retail brokers, targeting motor carriers with up to 25 units and offering forms and coverages designed specifically for the trucking industry. Also included is ATU’s exclusive Environmental Transportation program offering coverage for transportation clients handling hazardous materials and bulk environmental commodities.

Lancer has been a leading provider of premier specialty insurance solutions to businesses and commercial transportation companies across the United States for more than 35 years, leveraging a network of over 2,000 broker relationships and offering a broad range of insurance products and services for passenger transportation vehicles, small fleet and owner/operator long-haul truckers, rental vehicles, small to mid-sized commercial auto and garage businesses, commercial driving schools and commercial explosives manufacturers, distributors, transporters, and drilling and blasting contractors.

“We are excited with this new exclusive relationship to provide coverage across ATU’s portfolio of trucking programs,” said Ryan Armijo, president at Amwins Underwriting. “Our strategic relationship supports existing business and also provides a solid platform to grow and develop new business. Lancer focuses on the unique needs of commercial transportation policyholders, and on delivering extraordinary service and support to help them succeed.  Together, we are poised to deliver unparalleled insurance solutions to our clients, helping them win.”
