A review of Transport Auto Insurance finds that there is a company called Transport Insurance Agency, but it does not provide auto insurance.

Transport Insurance Agency provides insurance products for trucking companies serving common contract and owner/operator fleets. Their main offices are in Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana.

In 2008, Transport Insurance Agency, or TIA, merged with Baldwin and Lyons Brokerage Services (B&L) out of Indiana, making TIA a subsidiary of Baldwin & Lyons along with Protective Insurance Company and Sagamore Insurance Company.
