    What Is Truck Insurance?

    Trucking insurance is a type of financial protection designed for trucking businesses of all types and sizes. Trucking insurance consists of an array of policies from which you can choose to get the right coverage for your fleet.

    • Do you own a large fleet or are you starting up as an owner-operator?
    • Is your business intrastate, interstate, or cross-border?
    • What’s your mode of transport – tractor trailer, cargo van, dump truck, pickup?
    • Are you carrying refrigerated cargo or hazardous materials?

    There is trucking insurance to meet your needs.
