TORONTO, Ont. — Following an initial seven-stop national tour, Mark Ram, President and CEO of Markel Insurance Company of Canada, is scheduled to visit five additional cities in a second wave of presentations on trucking insurance pricing trends.

Attendance at these information sessions is open to all carriers and insurance brokers.

“The intent of this series of presentations has been to address the fundamental facts and myths facing the Canadian trucking insurance sector,” says Ram. “We believe that carrierswhether they’re insured by Markel or notcan build a more strategic approach to their insurance needs when they have the facts to do so.”

Until now, the Canadian trucking industry has never received clear information on how insurance is priced and why rates have increased so dramatically in recent years, added Ram.

“We feel the industry should demand this information, not only so they will have a better understanding of what’s affecting their premiums, but so that they will have the facts to do something about it.”

As a result of the initial seven-city tour, Markel has been deluged with requests to bring this presentation to a wider audience.

Ram’s upcoming tour dates will begin in Ontario before moving on to Alberta. Additional dates are currently being confirmed for the Quebec region and will be announced shortly.

The confirmed dates are as follows: Jan. 13 at the Radisson Hotel in Markham; Jan. 24 at the Quality Inn in Sudbury; Jan. 26 at the Doubletree International Plaza Hotel in Etobicoke; Feb. 7 at the Elmhurst Inn in Ingersoll; Feb. 9 at the Best Western in Calgary, Alta.

These sessions are open to all trucking operators and insurance brokers, and admission is free of charge. However, seating at all sessions is limited and reservations are recommended. To RSVP for any of the event dates, contact Stacey Kenny at 1-888-MARKEL-1.
