Taking the Right Safety Precautions May Help Your Access to Fleet Insurance
Safety plays a prevalent place in the transportation industry, and for good reason. Technology is providing new and more comprehensive ways to keep vehicles and people safer. Federal and state governments are implementing safer practices. Businesses want to avoid the risk and high costs that unsafe transportation practices create.
With insurers raising rates and dropping coverage based on safety records and efforts, having a solid safety plan that is bolstered by the most current transportation safety equipment can help make your fleet more attractive to them. At Ryder, we offer discounts on the cost of fleet protection to business owners who outfit their vehicles with safety equipment that has proven results.
