Will My LTL Carrier Have Insurance That Covers My Shipment?
Many of those who contact us to arrange for LTL carrier service have never used this type of service before want to know what, if any, type of insurance coverage these carriers have in the event anything should happen to their freight during transit. As you are going to find throughout the trucking industry, all of the carriers in our network at LTL Freight Shipping are going to provide you with nothing more than liability cargo insurance.
This type of insurance covers your freight by the pound and only at a rate of pennies to the pound. If you are shipping anything of real value, you are going to find that this insurance is not going to come anywhere near cover the cost of replacement. However, you will find that you can purchase supplemental insurance coverage for anything that you plan to ship using an LTL carrier that will cover the full values of your shipment.
