January 28 - January marks the 15th anniversary of a partnership between the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) and Atlanta-based NationsBuilders Insurance Services (NBIS).

To mark this milestone, SC&RA renewed its commitment to NBIS with a three-year contract to extend the company's status as the association's exclusively-endorsed provider of property and casualty insurance.

NBIS coverage designed for SC&RA members includes trucker's liability, contractors' auto, general liability, Custom cargo/transit, inland marine, excess/umbrella, and worker's compensation. NBIS coverage is rate A- (Excellent) byA.M. Best.
