Show Notes

The Canadian trucking industry is the backbone that supports supply chains across multiple sectors.  

There are challenges with this critical market – everything from safely driving on our ever-changing roads due to weather and cargo deliveries exposes trucking companies and their drivers to millions of losses annually, which cannot be managed effectively without the right insurance coverage. 

Just how big is this industry in Canada?  I’ve seen numbers showing the industry generated almost 39.55 billion Canadian dollars from nearly 63.7 million shipments.

Ensuring the long-haul trucking industry is properly insured can be a challenge but an opportunity. 

Today we speak with Steve Glykis, the Director of Long Haul Trucking and Commercial Automobile, with Echelon Insurance.

Echelon is Bryson’s insurance partner, and they offer Long Haul Trucking to a select group of experienced brokers and their clientele. The trucking industry is complex, but they can have you covered through our disciplined, experienced personnel and strong broker partnerships.
