“To prevent accidents, Northbridge instituted a mirror adjustment program,” says Steve Farris. “It was so well received by our drivers, I still get feedback today from people who have been driving transport trucks for years. They were impressed and surprised that there was science and technique involved in adjusting their mirrors. Our CFO was pretty happy, too.”
Nobody knows trucking and logistics, or understands the unique challenges facing transportation companies, more than we do at Northbridge Insurance®. With over 60 years of experience in the transportation sector, quite simply, we get trucking. Our Visibility Improvement Program is one example. Properly adjusted mirrors dramatically reduce major accidents, and minor incidents that lead to below deductible costs, such as sideswipes and backing into stationary objects. We work with you to reduce the frequency of these occurrences so you can improve your bottom line.
“Compared to other insurers, the Northbridge Insurance team brings an awful lot to the table in the range of services they provide,” says Mr. Farris. “Not only are they a very talented group of people, they are truly experts in their field.“
Many Northbridge Insurance Risk Services Consultants come from the trucking industry with various backgrounds ranging from truck drivers to management. We focus on solutions that work to prevent loss. Many insurers do an initial risk assessment, then you may never see them again. We provide ongoing customized support, training and materials to assist with your specific needs. No other insurer matches the comprehensive safety management and driver training capabilities that we offer nationwide, and at our own driver training facility in Guelph, Ontario.

“Working with Northbridge has been like going from the minor leagues to the majors,” says Mr. Farris. “The impact of changing insurers was immediate and tangible to our bottom line.”
