The face of logistics has changed rapidly over the last two decades with the meteoric rise of Amazon and other online retailers. Neighborhoods that previously only saw USPS trucks rumbling through their streets are now visited by Amazon vans and even private passenger cars stopping by multiple times a day to deliver one package or another.
This step of the logistical process, where smaller logistical vehicles take packages from a distribution center to your doorstep, is referred to as ‘last-mile delivery’. Despite the relatively short distances involved, the potential for these vehicles to be involved in an accident or experience criminal activity is arguably higher than those of long-haul trucking. You’re more likely to get in an accident within 5 miles of home than over long distances, after all.
With greater risk comes a greater need for insurance, so if you are planning on operating a last mile logistics service, you need to begin researching what types of policies you’ll need as soon as possible. Last mile insurance providers run the gamut of cheap to expensive, but good brokers like SWAN Insurance can assess your business’s needs and get you the right policies without the fuss.
SWAN Insurance has been providing solid, affordable insurance policies for logistics companies and contractors all over San Diego for years, and has a sizeable number of testimonials from their clients that attest to their professionalism and reliability:
I’ve been working with Chris and his team for over one year and two months. My first insurance for my business. He always makes time for my questions or concerns.
No matter how small or tedious and responses are always timely.
Chris and Anna are very professional, polite, hard-working people, and patient. They do their best to provide the information needed. Very well organized. For my business, this is more than fine. I don’t even want to change my insurance because I don’t think I will find someone better than Chris and Anna. Excellent customer service!
I would strongly recommend Swan Insurance because of its quality service, full transparency, ease of doing business, and most importantly reliable. Happy with SWAN INSURANCE!!!– Matthew Murdock, Google Review
Chris has been absolutely fantastic to deal with at Swan Insurance. I received notification 2-3 weeks before my Workers Comp was supposed to renew that my carrier no longer accepted my market. My General Liability rep gave me Chris’s number and within a week he not only had quotes for me but the rate was lower than the previous carrier. Chris and Swan Insurance was an absolute Godsend to me. I would highly recommend them.– Kaylene J., Yelp Review
At first I had some difficulty getting communication from some of the representatives. However, that quickly changed for some unknown reason. In a society where customer service is on the decline, it’s obvious that it is still important to the people of Swan Insurance. They clearly explain the policies but I don’t feel oversold or over insured. They are quick to respond to any inquiries my employees or I have and they patiently follow up on pending policy matters, even if we are slow to decide on which policy to go with. I’ve come to appreciate their service and support– Kelan W., Yelp Review
Commercial delivery vehicles are far from safe out there on the mean streets, so it’s absolutely imperative that you get your vehicle and your cargo the coverage they need to be fully protected from the dangers drivers will face out on the road. If you’re in San Diego, that means giving SWAN Insurance a call today:
