“I’m old school,” says Brian Kurtz. “When I started my trucking company over 30 years ago, you didn’t worry too much about the rules. Now there are so many rules and regulations. Every province and state is different. And we’re getting more regulated every week.”
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. We understand how difficult it is to stay current on safety and compliance requirements in various jurisdictions—with different weight restrictions, hours of service, maintenance requirements and operating authorities—and how genuinely complicated they can be. “Someone once said that trucking has twice as much paperwork as banking. Too bad we don’t have twice the profits,” jokes Mr. Kurtz.
Northbridge provides the kind of value-added features and benefits you won’t find anywhere else—like reports that allow our clients to benchmark their safety and compliance performance versus the industry and their competition. Our tools enable you to improve your operations and lower costs, boosting your bottom line. Our customers, in turn, have used these reports to win more business by objectively proving that they adhere to best industry practices with superior compliance standards.
No other insurer works as hard to maintain relationships with customers as Northbridge, or matches our comprehensive safety and compliance tools and resources. We provide ongoing, customized support, training and materials to assist with your specific needs. We’ll even help you improve your dollar-one loss costs for incidents below your deductible.

“Margins are half of what they were 10 years ago,” says Mr. Kurtz. “But I know Northbridge will always be there. Heck, they’ve been around even longer than me.”
