TORONTO, Ont. — Jones DesLauriers Insurance Management (JDIMI) has paired with fleet safety consultant Brian Botham to expand its services.
One of the challenges facing the Canadian trucking industry, is ensuring compliance standards are met, especially with the ever-changing North American transportation regulations, according to the company.
Continuous infractions, fines, and accidents – regardless of who is at fault – can ultimately result in a decline in a company’s reputation and possibly dropped insurance coverage, states JDIMI. To that end, the company has partnered with Botham.
“We decided it was time to expand our valued-added services by offering both in-house insurance solutions, and fleet safety consulting for owners and operators,” said Glenn Murray, a partner and account executive at JDIMI. “A state-of-the-art trucking safety program and insurance should go hand-in-hand. It’s a marriage that just makes sense.”
Botham has 25 years of experience educating and resolving issues for numerous companies, including GAP, CVOR and injury analysis, proactive risk assessments, and driver training.
“Our main focus is to offer guidance to trucking operations and their employees to ensure compliance with safety standards, improve their business operations, and boost their productivity, while keeping their insurance costs low,” says Botham. “Clients have already responded overwhelmingly to this inclusive program. It seems to be the way of the future.”
