The TransPar Group of Companies has announced a strategic partnership with transportation insurance provider National Interstate as its exclusive insurance carrier.
Bus contractors and other transportation operators will benefit from cost savings as a result of the alignment between the two organizations, according to TransPar.
TransPar is comprised of three organizations that provide solutions in the school transportation industry, offering products and services designed to help school districts and contractors save money and improve the quality of their school transportation operations.
“National Interstate has a long history of providing a great line of liability coverage products, which we believe will be a great option for a significant portion of our client base," said Tim Ammon, chief business development officer for TransPar. "Naturally, National Interstate customers will also have access to our buying power and economies of scale when it comes to purchasing, leasing, maintenance, and any of the other solutions that we provide school districts and contractors to lower costs and improve the efficiency of their operations.”
TransPar will extend the benefits of the purchasing power it has across the student transportation value chain to customers of National Interstate and its network of contractors. From acquiring and leasing buses through comprehensive fleet planning to school bus driver training via web-based learning management systems and parts and technology procurement savings, the company’s offerings provide customized solutions that aim to reduce costs, increase safety, and improve student transportation operations.
“Being affiliated with the TransPar Group of Companies is something we are very excited about,” said Tod Carney, national marketing manager for National Interstate. “They are transportation industry leaders when it comes to providing products and services that create efficiencies, lower costs, and improve operations, and we are confident that our contractor clients will benefit from this partnership and the TransPar Group of Companies discount buying programs.”
