Damaged Cargo, Damages More Than Just Cargo
Every trucker knows that things happen on the road you can’t predict. An accident or an equipment failure can bring your trip to a sudden halt and damage your cargo.
The success of your business rides on every shipment. How quickly you’re able to make good on lost, stolen or damaged goods can make the difference between losing customers or keeping them. That’s where Motor Truck Cargo Liability Insurance comes in.
Motor Truck Cargo Liability coverage offers common carriers, contract carriers, private carriers, specialized carriers and independent truckers broad protection, without exclusions for things like, wetness, stolen and missing cargo, or shortages found while taking inventory.
