Vehicle, Heavy Equipment Haulers Get Relief - Cut Insurance, Fuel Costs through National Vehicle Transporters Alliance
PLYMOUTH, Mich., April 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Jason Walker, Chief Operating Officer of United Road, the largest provider of finished vehicle transport logistics in North America today announced the launch of a new sister company, National Vehicle Transporters Alliance (NVTA), whose sole purpose is to serve as a business resource for United Road and Team DriveAway's 5,000-plus independent carriers, 85% of whom are small to mid-sized. NVTA connects carriers affiliated with United Road and Team DriveAway/Fr8 with substantial cost-saving resources and support services essential to their day-to-day business operations. NVTA levels the playing field for small and mid-sized haulers giving them access to the buying power of larger carriers.
"We saved over $10,000 on cargo and $35,000 on AL, GL and APD by switching to NVTA's insurance." - Dani Transport
"United Road saw a dramatic drop-out rate among small and mid-sized vehicle haulers due to Covid," said Jason Walker, Chief Operating Officer, United Road. "When the country locked down, when demand disappeared, carriers exited. Some retired. Some retooled to carry different freight. We asked carriers how we could help sustain their businesses. That's when the lights went on for NVTA as a way for United Road to leverage its market relationships and resources to support not just our active carrier network but the profession as a whole.
"The business premise for NVTA is simple: When our carriers do well, we do well."
NVTA's business insurance offering was road-tested among a pilot group of carriers earlier this year. Carriers can save up to 25% on business insurance upon renewal. Effective today, fuel discounts of up to $.80 a gallon will be availabe.
"We have saved over $10,000 on our cargo and $35,000 on AL, GL and APD programs by switching to NVTA's insurance," said Bernard and Daniela Gutierrez, owners of Dani Transport based in California.
Highlights of NVTA's offerings include:
NVTA has three levels of membership:
The benefits of NVTA far exceed the membership cost which can be readily recouped in as little as one to two months through substantial savings on fuel, maintenance and parts, business insurance for carriers that qualify, and other exclusive member benefits at a discount level that carriers could not get on their own.
"One of the important differentiators for NVTA is that it is an alliance built by carriers for carriers," said Walker. "We know firsthand the high cost of insuring trucks and trailers, the business interruption, the costs that breakdowns cause as well as the frustration of getting repairs done on a holiday weekend at a reasonable cost. NVTA 'gets' the business of hauling vehicles."
