Cargo Insurance Coverage
Cargo insurance isn’t always required by law, depending on the capacity your business is running. But most customers in the shipping industry will demand it, even for general freight or dry goods. More specialized cargo insurance exists for fragile or perishable cargo such as that transported by reefer (refrigerated trailers) or hazardous materials (hazmat) like toxic or explosive gas and liquids. Minimum coverage amounts for these types of cargo is typically mandated by state or federal regulations.
Bulldog Can Help Lower Your Cargo Insurance Rates
Cargo insurance rates can fluctuate pretty dramatically based on the material your hauling, how it changes hands and what state you’re business is operating in. Common motor truck cargo insurance for hauling dry goods and general freight might only need policies up to a 10,000 limit or so. Hazardous Materials insurance could require coverage amounts into the millions by law.
