Does My LTL Carrier Have Insurance That Covers Any Freight I Ship?
We are frequently asked by our customers who have never used an LTL carrier whether or not their freight is covered by any kind of insurance should anything should happen to it while in transit. What you will find that all of the carriers you can book through us offer standard liability cargo insurance on everything they carry, this is the same insurance that is offered throughout the shipping industry.
LTL Carrier Insurance Pays by the Pound
The insurance they offer is designed to pay by the pound at the rate of a few cents per pound. This type of insurance is definitely not enough to cover most damage or any kind of loss. You will however, find that you can buy supplemental insurance for anything you ship with an LTL carrier to cover up to the full value of your load. If you need this type of supplemental insurance, please talk to one of our agents for more information on what coverages you need and how to go about getting them.
