Hudson’s Commercial Auto unit is a leading provider of fleet trucking insurance. Based out of Indianapolis, our underwriting team specializes in offering products that serve transportation clients who want to actively manage their total cost of risk. To meet this need, Hudson offers an Excess Indemnity Contract (EIC) that sits above a Self-Insured Retention (SIR), which is determined by the size and criteria of each client, with the goal of customizing coverage and risk-sharing that fit specific needs. Our products are offered through brokers across the U.S. We offer coverage solutions to large motor carriers with more than 200 power units qualified to participate in a risk sharing program with retention levels of $50K+ hauling open-deck, dry van, temperature-controlled, liquid/dry bulk, intermodal and specialized freight.
