Trucking Insurance

Trucking insurance is not a one-size-fits-all product.  There are many variables that go into rating, and insuring, a risk properly.  At Bayou Insurance, we have markets for all types of trucking insurance to include non-trucking liability, owner/operators, fleet, and anything in between.

Protecting your trucking operation from the impact of potential claims should be the first order of business.  And while only a precisely crafted insurance package can shield your business from this expense and stress, it’s usually the last thing business owners handle.

What types of trucking insurance is there?

There are many types and levels of trucking insurance available.  Below is a basic summary of trucking insurance:

  • Primary trucking Liability insurance is required and mandated by state and federal regulation.  Levels of coverage vary depending on vehicle GVW, commodity, and operations. Primary trucking liability is coverage that protects you when you cause damage to another party.
  • Non-Trucking Liability insurance covers a leased-on unit for damage done to others when not under dispatch of a motor carrier.
  • Physical Damage insurance is coverage for your truck/trailer in the event of a theft, at fault collision, vandalism, etc.
  • General Liability insurance protects you when damage is done to others that does not involve your truck or trailer.  Truckers general liability is very affordable coverage no trucking operation should go without! One example could be a collision caused by your driver who is waiving a car around when broken down on a two-lane road.
  • Cargo Insurance covers freight while in transit.  There can be many exclusions to this coverage, so you’ll want to make sure your agent knows what you’re hauling.

Again, the above coverage is the most basic coverage for trucking insurance.  At Bayou Insurance, we make sure we understand your operation and create a fully comprehensive coverage plan for your specific trucking operation.
