Commercial auto premium renewal rates increased 3.2% on average, the Tampa, Florida-based unit of insurance technology firm Applied Systems Inc. said in a statement. General liability premium rates increased 1.7%, umbrella rates increased 1.2%, commercial property rates rose 2.8% and business owner’s policy premium renewal rates increased 4%.
