Transportation & Logistics Insurance Explained
Insuring heavy vehicles can seem complicated, from completing filings and regulatory requirements to making sure you have the proper coverage. Heavy vehicles in every industry have different insurance needs and our expert advisors understand that. The logistics side of the business is just as complex as the drive. Planning routes, resources and timelines are an essential side of the business. We’ll take the time to understand your risks while also knowing the complexities of your business.
- Liability Coverage
This is an essential form of coverage included in a transportation policy. It protects you and your business in the event you are found to be responsible for an accident.
- Physical Damage Coverage (Collision & Comprehensive)
These forms of coverage are an integral part of a Transportation policy. It protects you and your business in the event your vehicle is damaged in an accident, stolen or damaged in a fire.
- Specialized Coverage
There are also coverages specific to the trucking industry, including:
- reefer breakdown
- loading & unloading
- debris removal and
- aggregate deductibles to name a few
- Cargo Coverage for Transportation Businesses
A big part of the transportation and logistics equation is the cargo itself. Accidents can happen and losses to your load may occur while in transit. That’s where a cargo policy comes into play. It ensures that if the cargo is damaged while it is being transported or being loaded or unloaded, coverage will kick in. This ensures that your business will not be financially responsible for the replacement of the cargo.
