Transportation Insurance

Hauling goods means navigating risk on and off the road. We’ve developed a transportation insurance policy to help you avoid problems at the outset and cover you if something goes wrong along the way.

Who needs transportation insurance?

Whether you’re a sole owner-operator, manage a large fleet of trucks, or handle delicate cargo, we can help. From coverage for your cargo to legal support should liability issues arise, we can build you a policy that aligns with your unique set of risks.

Here are some subsectors that should consider tailored transportation insurance:

Ready to get started? Let’s begin with the pressing question…

Why do you need transportation insurance?

Working with trucks, trailers, and cargo can mean there’s a lot on the line – financially, legally, and with respect to your reputation. You’ll need support to handle the regulation concerns, daily risks, and safety issues that can come with the job.

Legislation and regulation concerns

From safety standards to commercial truck filings, there are some legal and regulatory requirements to consider. Proving that you have enough liability insurance to meet federal requirements isn’t an option – it’s a necessity. Likewise, you can’t get around inspection obligations, so it’s good to have some expertise in your corner.

Risks vary, and consequences can be scary

Depending on the goods you haul, the equipment you use, and where you travel, you could face everything from vehicle damage to cargo theft in your day-to-day operations. Events like these can jeopardize safety, revenue, and your good name. A safety net can help keep your business going.

Specialized hauling calls for specialized coverage

Operating a specialized vehicle – like an oversize trailer or tanker – can mean you face potential hazards that other carriers don’t need to consider. The precision and scope of your operations can push your loss beyond the reach of a general insurance policy. Specific coverage is smarter coverage.

What can we do for you?

Whatever your operations involve – long-haul or local-radius, living cargo, vehicles used in a trailer-interchange agreement – we can help keep you moving with the right coverage.
