Commercial Transportation Insurance for Your Business

Our country depends on the transportation industry to keep things running. Whether it’s food, fuel, building supplies, or people, we rely on large vehicles and their drivers to safely deliver cargo. Because the demand for consumer goods is increasing and will only continue to increase, the number of large vehicles on the roads is also increasing.

Accidents do happen and should anything happen to your company’s vehicle, driver, or cargo while on the road, commercial auto insurance can assist with the losses. From the medical bills of the driver to the repair or replacement of the vehicle and cargo, transportation insurance is a must for any company that uses commercial vehicles to deliver goods.

What types of vehicles qualify for commercial transportation insurance?

If your company uses cars, vans, trucks, busses, trains, planes, boats, etc. to transport goods for business purposes, then you qualify for commercial auto/transportation insurance. In fact, if you use any type of vehicle for business purposes it must be insured with commercial auto insurance. Whether your company has a large fleet, small fleet, or a single vehicle, the vehicle, driver, and cargo need to be protected from the risks of the road.
