Motor Truck Cargo insurance (MTC) provides insurance on the freight or commodity hauled by a For-hire trucker. It covers your liability for cargo that is lost or damaged due to causes such as fire, collision, or striking of a load.
If your load is accidentally dumped on a roadway or waterway (Removal Expenses coverage), our coverage pays for the cost to remove debris or extract pollutants caused by the debris. We’ll also pay for costs related to preventing further loss to damaged cargo, legal expenses in the defense or settlement of Claims’ and even freight charges the customer loses because of not delivering a load (Earned Freight Coverage).
Motor Truck Cargo insurance is only available for for-hire trucking risks on policies with one or more of the following body types: dump truck, tractor, most trailers, box trucks, cement mixers, cargo vans, dually pick-ups, flatbeds and car haulers.
Motor Truck Cargo insurance is not available on garbage trucks, limos, hearses, buses, passenger vans or ice cream trucks. The following cargo types are also excluded from coverage (other exclusions may apply):
