What You'll Learn

In the competitive marketplace, IFNTU policies are sold either individually (usually in conjunction with the owner-operator physical damage coverage) or as part of a group of owner-operators permanently leased to a single regulated motor carrier. Since the latter can generate substantial premiums, some retail truck producers and truck insurers aggressively seek such IFNTU fleet policies.

Your takeaways from this report include the following.

  • Trucking terminology: the trucking industry versus the insurance industry
  • What IFNTU is and why it was developed
  • Solutions and insurance coverage addressing the IFNTU exposure
