Through our industry specialization McGriff has obtained first-hand knowledge of the Railway industry and has established relationships with key insurance and service providers. Our service to clients from all areas of the rail industry ensure that we are well positioned to serve clients in the entire rail supply chain – from Shortline Operators to customers, suppliers, or contractors, we know Rail.
Additionally, McGriff is involved with several National Associations such as:
- American Shortline and Regional Railroad Association (ASLRRA)
- National Railroad Construction and Maintenance Association (NRC)
- American Railway & Engineering Maintenance-of-Way Association (AREMA)
*Employees of McGriff, Seibels & Williams, Inc. are Members of AREMA
Our membership and active participation in these organizations allow us to keep abreast of emerging issues which can potentially alter the risk exposures for our clients. Our attendance at the various conferences and meetings of these Associations also allows for interaction with other railroad personnel, service providers and insurers to further our relationships with these individuals.
McGriff’s Railroad Practice Group is centralized in our Corporate Headquarters located in Birmingham, AL. We believe that the concentration of similar clients into one unit allows us to gain a greater working knowledge of a specific industry and keep in touch with emerging issues which can affect our clients.
