We all know what a contract is – a legally binding piece of paper that says I will give you this and you will give me that. We both sign on the dotted line and we’re locked in.
But trucking contracts aren’t that cut and dry. In the trucking industry, contracts aren’t always the standard kind. In trucking there are essentially three types of contracts – verbal agreement, paper or digital, and non-compete or non-solicitation.

Electronic Logging Device (ELD) was the buzzword of 2017 and 2018, right? The buzzing about ELDs has lessened a little in 2019, but that’s about to change with the upcoming deadline to switch from AOBRDs to ELDs by December 16, 2019.

Two and 12 – those numbers have a nice ring to them. We are so proud of two and 12. This is the second year Apex Capital is named one of the Healthiest Companies in America by Interactive Health. That means we take the health and wellness of our employees very seriously. What about the 12? Well, this is the 12th year that Apex is named one of the Best Companies to Work for in Texas. We call it our lucky dozen. That honor is quite special because it’s all about our employees. Sarah King, Apex’s Health and Wellbeing Manager, offered some thoughts about the Healthiest Companies in America award. Apex was one of only 151 companies in the United States to earn this award in 2018. That number went down from 184 companies in 2017, when Apex first won. And Shelley Goodrum, Apex’s Chief Human Resources Officer, has watched Apex grow through the years and she’s pleased to know that the Best Companies to Work for in Texas honor reflects keeping all employees happy during that growth.

So, we decided to lighten the load on the heavy topic. With the help of trucking insurance experts John Mondics, President, and Jonathan Mondics, Vice President, of Plano, Texas-based Mondics Insurance Group, we put together a two-part series answering top-of-mind questions about factors that affect commercial truck insurance rates.
Part one focuses on the planning stage, the ramp-up to getting a quote and securing insurance.
