How do you go from good to great? We believe an insurance broker should do more than simply place insurance. We want our customers to become “best in class”, and we have tailored our programming and consultative model to help you get there.
Service to the transportation industry is at the heart of LaPorte’s history and mission. In 1978 when our founder Marv LaPorte began our agency, he took his experience as a trucking underwriter to the retail agency space working with transportation clients. Since then, we have become the largest locally held independent agency in Oregon. Our Pacific Northwest footprint has rapidly expanded across the country, as we help highly rated motor carriers build the finest insurance programming. Our focus and expertise in the transportation field is unparalleled because of our relationships with a wide variety of insurance providers that specialize in transportation, as well as the deep industry background of our Transportation Team.
LaPorte’s Transportation Team provides specialty programming which allows carriers of all sizes to better understand their fleet performance, driver behavior and the resources required to become best in class. We have partnered with the industry’s leading technology providers to ensure our customers have access to proven resources to track and monitor fleet performance, improve operational transparency and enhance control.
