Motor Truck Cargo Insurance protects truckers against claims related to the loss of cargo while in transit, loading or unloading, and while at a terminal or dock awaiting final distribution when the property sustains damage or loss due to a covered peril. This type of insurance can cover truckers and transporters for their liability for cargo that is lost or damaged due to causes such as fire, collision, striking of a load, lightning, explosion, windstorm, vandalism, rioting or other unrest. Additional insurance coverages can be purchased such as Refrigeration Breakdown Coverage. A growing number of shippers are requiring that truckers insure their cargo.
At the time of shipment it is important that all items to be transported are properly included in the Bill of Lading. After a loss, it is critical that the cause of loss and damage be documented.
