Leadership Corner
We are pleased to present the Fall Edition of Aon Connect from our Transportation and Logistics Practice.

Our recent Empower Results Day for Clients was an important time for reflection on the importance of our clients and the value of being an innovative and trusted advisor to them. Hearty congratulations to longtime colleague and Senior Account Specialist Janice Womack, upon being awarded our first annual Heart of a Servant Award. Considering the ELD Mandate was recently upheld in the U.S. Court of Appeals, David Mitchell’s handy 4-page summary of the FMCSA’s new rules is a timely addition to our industry resource materials. And finally, we hope you will find useful our articles on cyber liability, employee financial mindsets, as well as the reinsurance market outlook.

We appreciate your support of our quarterly newsletter, but please know this will be our final edition. In the future, it will be replaced by “Client Alerts” that are designed to be timely and brief, and by occasional “Client Advisory” announcements which will provide more in depth information on important issues, and be distributed on a more selective and personal basis. We hope this change in the way we disseminate information will prove to be more effective and useful for you. But as always, we welcome your suggestions and comments our how we can better communicate with, and advise you.

If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact me or one of our Transportation and Logistics Practice colleagues any time. The Thanksgiving and Christmas season is almost upon us, so let me wish you in advance Happy Holidays!

Written by David Mitchell, Director of Risk Control & Safety, Aon Risk Solutions, Transportation & Logistics Practice

The new rules are refinements to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations dealing with hours of service. All parties who were expected to comply with hours of service limitations and records of duty status requirements (log books) in the past are still expected to follow the new regulations dealing with electronic logging devices (ELDs). This includes, trucking companies, drivers, shippers, and freight forwarders and logistics companies.

This 4-page summary is intended to provide basic information about electronic logging devices. If you are interested in reading the entire Final Rule on ELDS, that 516-page document is available on the FMCSA website.

Aon Benfield Reinsurance Market Outlook
The September 2016 edition of Aon’s Reinsurance Market Outlook report provides a comprehensive analysis of the key variables affecting reinsurance buyers in the approach to the January 1 reinsurance renewals. It discusses how the gap between reinsurance supply and demand has narrowed over the past year, driven by the improved economics of purchasing and reassessment of the core value of the product. However, ample capacity remains available to support current growth aspirations and risk transfer needs.
