Avant Brokerage Delivers
Why Avant Brokerage?
Our company has niche industry experience, administrative expertise, and exclusive specialty programs to empower our agents. We want our agents to concentrate on growing their business instead of worrying about the high service demands of fleets and motor carriers’ customers. Whether your insured are fleet owners, motor carrier risks, or just one independent contractor, Avant Brokerage is your go-to solutions specialist for the complex service requirements of the transportation industry.
We deliver “A” rated markets, competitive commissions, and nationwide reach to round out our world-class service. This approach allows our agents to have higher closing and retention ratios than traditional carrier contracts or MGA appointments.
Most insurance wholesalers only offer insurance placements. When you roll with Avant Brokerage as your transportation wholesaler, you will see the difference from day one.
We correspond directly with the motor carrier to set up account-specific administrative services.
We provide a designated account manager.
We bill and collect premiums direct with the motor carrier or independent contractor.
We verify and process endorsements and eligibility.
We issue certs, cancellation notices, and much more.
A Focused History
For more than 25 years, Avant Brokerage has been developing transportation insurance solutions—including customized administration services and billing solutions—for independent agents focused on the transportation business sector.
Avant Brokerage’s expertise and rich history started in 1997 under the name TAS to address the unique insurance needs of owner-operators (independent contractors) in the trucking industry.
Located in Lee’s Summit, MO, TAS was acquired in 2013 by Avant, a transportation insurance specialist. We became an immediate go-to company for independent insurance agents seeking specialized insurance solutions and customized services for the demanding needs of their transportation risk clients across the nation. Additionally, in 2013, iCS (Independent Contractor Services) of Jacksonville, FL was acquired to expand Avant Brokerage’s insurance programs, associations, and customized solutions.
And Still Growing
Identified as a platform of extensive growth, Avant Brokerage was purchased in 2020 by insurance solutions giant, Specialty Program Group (SPG). SPG offers access to capital and investment, deep carrier relationships, creative thinking, product development, and broad distribution, all while allowing their insurance businesses to maintain the essence of what makes them successful.
Today, Avant Brokerage is known as a national transportation industry insurance expert. We provide higher closing and retention ratios for our independent agency partners, while at the same time providing solid solutions to take on many of the services needed for our agents to be very successful.
