Amwins forms National Transportation Underwriters

Amwins announced the formation of Amwins National Transportation Underwriters. This entity brings together the expertise of Amwins Transportation Underwriters and National Truck Underwriting Managers, two long-standing MGAs dedicated to the transportation space who underwrite a combined $250M+ in annual premium.

As a single operating company, Amwins National Transportation Underwriters will provide clients with nationwide access to almost a dozen binding markets and a growing list of specialty transportation programs. With almost 80 employees spread across eight locations, retail agents will have easy access to transportation-certified underwriters with regional expertise for both fleet and non-fleet accounts.

The previously separate operating companies ATU and NTUM enjoyed successful legacies as independent organizations and within Amwins. Legacy organization ATU was formed via a number of Amwins’ transportation insurance underwriting acquisitions, starting with Seaboard Underwriters in 2003. Amwins acquired the NTUM legacy unit in 2021.

Justin Joyce, formerly president of NTUM, will lead the new Amwins National Transportation Underwriters binding unit. He has worked in transportation insurance his entire 20-year career and has a proven track record of building relationships with internal and external clients.

ANTU’s specialty programs unit – environmental transportation; freight broker liability and Advantage – will continue to be led by their program managers.

“ATU and NTUM have each been in this space for more than 40 years; they know transportation. By combining these two well-respected brands, we can drive forward even greater impact on the industry through unparalleled market access and outstanding customer service.” – Ryan Armijo, president, Amwins Underwriting.
