Trucks are the working vehicles of the automotive industry, designed to provide all the power needed to get things from one place to another. There are literally millions of trucks on the nation's roads, and while they're critical to our economy, even the safest trucks represent a serious risk for the companies operating them. Large trucks are involved in hundreds of thousands of collisions each year, which means that every single truck has a genuinely high chance of needing to file a claim.
This is where trucking insurance comes in. Whether you're hauling a few supplies between work sites or shipping products across the entire country, trucking insurance can ensure that you get the support you need in case something goes wrong.

Motor Truck Cargo insurance (Cargo) provides insurance on the freight or commodity hauled by a For-hire trucker. It covers your liability for cargo that is lost or damaged due to causes such as fire, collision, or striking of a load.
If your load is accidentally dumped on a roadway or waterway (Removal Expenses coverage), our coverage pays for the cost to remove debris or extract pollutants caused by the debris. The insurance companies will also pay for costs related to preventing further loss to damaged cargo (Sue and Labor Coverage), legal expenses in the defense or settlement of Claims’ and even freight charges the customer loses because of not delivering a load (Earned Freight Coverage).
