We offer cargo insurance with every shipment.

Our carriers count with insurance for all shipments. According to the service we provide, you will have access to the following coverage:

  • For a full truckload shipment, $100,000.00 US per trailer or conveyance.
  • For a shared truckload shipment, our carriers offer $100,000 in the aggregate per trailer or conveyance, provided that liability to each shipper will be prorated based on the linear feet of the trailer or container utilized by the shipper.
  • For a less-than-truckload or “LTL” shipment, the limit per pound for the applicable freight class set forth in the Carrier’s tariff, but in any case not to exceed $25.00 per pound of lost or damaged cargo up to $100,000 per trailer or conveyance.

No matter how long or short the trip is. If the value of your freight is higher, we can always offer additional insurance at an extra cost to make sure your shipment is covered in the case of an accident or damages.

What if my freight gets damaged?

In the case of an accident, we ask that you take pictures of the damages, and describe the damages on your Bill of Lading (BOL). Our team will take care of submitting the documentation to our carrier’s insurance. Next, an adjuster will show up to the facility where the damaged freight is located. There, they will inspect and report the damages to your freight. Once approved, they will write a check to your company with the claim amount.
