Getting trucking insurance is more complicated than getting home and auto insurance. A good insurance will protect you from loses arising from vehicles and cargo. It is important to be knowledgeable of transportation insurance coverage in respect to geographical area, type of cargo, insured amount, and what type of systems may help you in getting better rates.

How to find a right policy?

The key is to find a right insurance agent who can create the most appropriate policy for your organization that serves your requirements.

All insurances consist of three aspects – vehicle, general liability and cargo. Types of insurance/ policy depends on several factors, such as type of vehicles, cargo, size of the organization, and operating radius. Driver records, CVOR and company accident stats will affect the rates as well.  A clean driving record and better safety histories easily qualifies for lower rates.
