The logistics and transportation industry is built on the promise to deliver goods on behalf of merchants around the globe safely. That assurance extends to the transportation of personal goods and even asset investments like artwork as well. When goods are damaged in transit, it’s the transportation company that is usually liable for damages. Commercial cargo insurance protects against exposure to those risks, but it needs to be calibrated to suit the risks involved in specific modes of transport.
Motor Truck Cargo Coverage
Insuring trucking operations means covering cargo against the risks involved in traffic accidents due to driver error as well as those outside the driver’s control. Inclement weather coverage, protection against spoilage due to delays in traffic or vehicle breakdown, and other risks are covered as well. Depending on the range of industries served and the size of the company, cargo insurance could be quite simple or incredibly complex. Either way, you can save time and money by working with experts who understand both your business cycle and the laws you contend with.
Your commercial cargo insurance needs to be custom-tailored, so it’s hard to ballpark an average cost. It’s a lot easier to get in touch with a professional who knows how to put together a quick quote based on a few simple interview questions. Reach out today to learn more.
