Is My Freight Insured with an LTL Carrier?
One question that seems to come up frequently from customers who have never used an LTL carrier before concerns whether or not their freight is covered by any kind of insurance if anything should happen to it while in transit. What you will find that all of the carriers you can book through LTL Freight Shipping offer the industry-wide standard liability cargo insurance on everything they carry.
This insurance is by the pound and is only a few cents per pound, which is definitely not enough to cover most damage or any kind of loss. You will also 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 supplemental insurance, please talk to one of our agents for more information on what coverages you need and how to go about getting them.
