Here at Acuity, we understand truckers and the trucking industry. It is a key focus of ours. If it wasn’t, I wouldn’t be here. I am Cliff Johnson, Trucking Business Segment Specialist at Acuity.
I bring over 29 years of trucking industry experience to Acuity. I have managed safety operations at transportation companies and have also owned and managed my own commercial motor vehicle fleet. My trucking career began in the 1980s, hauling logs for paper mills and fuel for electrical generation power plants in northern Wisconsin. While still working in the industry, I enrolled at UW-Stout, where I earned my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business risk control. Upon graduation, I joined Great West Casualty Company in the insurer’s loss control department, where I served trucking clients throughout the continental 48 states.
Simply Acuity provides me the ability to reach out to truckers and help provide education on important issues affecting the industry. In my blog posts, I will be touching on many different trucking topics, including safety tips, industry updates, loss control information, trucking business best practices, and fun posts about the industry.
My main goal at Acuity is to help you, the trucking customer, better understand the insurance industry and help shape our insurance products to best meet your needs. I am excited for this opportunity. With over 29 years in the transportation sector, as both a company driver and as owner and manager of a trucking company, I have first-hand experience that helps me understand truckers’ concerns, detailed knowledge of transportation regulations, and a background in insurance loss control to help answer any questions that arise. If you have any questions for me about Acuity, or if there is a topic you would like me to address in my monthly Ask a Trucking Specialist column, please email me at email@example.com.
Acuity’s commitment to trucking goes well beyond the educational topics I will be writing about. We offer a wide range of insurance products, services, and resources that are customized to meet the needs of today’s truckers. Acuity is also active in trucking associations and encourages dialogue among the trucking community via our InGear Facebook page.
