For almost 100 years, Protective Insurance has served the trucking community. Customers have trusted us to help protect their business, and looked to us for our expertise in the industry. With this in mind, we have selected a network of vendors that specialize in the transportation space, and who we feel can help transportation companies improve their overall safety. 

These vendors can assist with:

  • Aftermarket vehicle technology
  • Driver recruitment
  • Driver training
  • Policy enforcement
  • Risk analysis, improved safety and more 

Our goal is to help make the vendor selection process easier for our insureds. While many of our clients already have vendors in place, we occasionally receive questions asking for referrals when clients are looking for a new or to replace an existing vendor. There are hundreds of options available in the marketplace today. Through our Vendor Referral Network, we have done the homework and narrowed the list to a group of companies that:

  • Are leading the market
  • Share our commitment to responsive service 
  • Share our philosophy of making the roads safer for all of us
