If there’s one thing you can count on in the trucking industry – it’s cargo damage. Protect yours with insurance from experts in your industry.
Almost every owner operator or motor carrier damages cargo at one point or another. It happens every single day. Cargo that’s being transported, unloaded, or loaded falls, breaks, get’s spoiled, etc. For motor carriers, this type of insurance is required by the Motor Carrier Act of 1935. For other types of transportation companies, it’s highly recommended.
You don’t want to be responsible for the cost of repairing or replacing thousands of dollars worth of cargo. Even if you think you or your drivers are the most careful haulers on the road, the risk of an unforeseen incident is just far too great to take that chance. Anything can happen when you’re transporting cargo. Bad weather, a refrigeration malfunction, and theft are all real threats.
