Parcel Insurance Plan was founded in 1966 with the mission to provide dramatically lower-cost package insurance to business shippers, while offering superior customer and claims service. PIP has been owned by Brown & Brown Insurance, the world's 7th largest insurance brokerage, since 2001.
Today, thousands of businesses in hundreds of industries throughout the country ship packages insured by PIP.
Since its inception, Parcel Insurance Plan has been underwritten by Fireman's Fund, one of America's largest and most financially secure insurance companies. Fireman's Fund is rated "A" Excellent by A.M. Best. No other provider of third party shipping insurance has had as long a relationship with such a strong insurance company.
In 2000, Parcel Insurance Plan created proprietary software in response to increasing customer interest in electronic reporting. Currently, ERIN 2000 works in combination with both UPS Online WorldShip and FedEx Ship Manager®. ERIN 2000 is simple to install, easy to use and best of all it’s FREE. There are no calculations to perform. Just a few clicks on your computer each month provides all the reporting we need! Automated PIP monthly reports are also available from many third-party shipping manifest systems.
