Motor Truck Cargo Insurance


Essential Protection for Your Cargo

Trucking Insruance meant to Protect You

Motor truck cargo insurance plays a pivotal role in the trucking industry, safeguarding the liability of motor carriers against potential destruction, damage, or loss of a customer’s property during transit. With a multitude of coverage options available, it’s crucial for motor carriers to carefully select the right type of cargo coverage tailored to their needs. 

Understanding the Legal Landscape 

While there’s no federal mandate requiring cargo insurance for motor carriers not transporting household goods (BMC 34 or BMC 83), investing in cargo insurance is paramount for trucking companies. This ensures adequate protection for the goods being transported. It’s important to be aware that several cargo insurance policies come with specific exclusions and deductibles, which might limit the extent of coverage. 

Choosing the Right Coverage 

Typically, for-hire motor carriers opt for coverage amounting to $100,000. However, this amount can vary depending on the commodities being transported and the requirements set by shippers or brokers. Selecting the appropriate coverage ensures that your business is protected against potential financial losses due to damaged or lost cargo.
