Moto Cargo Coverage

Offering Moto Cargo Insurance for those who transport goods.

Motor Truck Cargo insurance (Cargo) 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 (Sue and Labor Coverage), 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).

Who needs motor truck cargo insurance?

A growing number of risk managers require truckers to insure their cargo. You can meet that requirement with Progressive’s Motor Truck Cargo Insurance. It pays when you are responsible for damage to or loss of the cargo due to fire, collision or even hitting or running over the cargo that you transport on behalf of a client.

Limits, deductibles, and other details

When you select Motor Truck Cargo insurance, you have to select a limit for your coverage. This limit determines the maximum amount your insurance company will pay for damaged or destroyed cargo. You also need to choose a deductible. A deductible is the amount you agree to pay out of pocket when you have a claim. Choosing a higher deductible is an easy way to lower the price of your insurance, but be sure you choose a deductible that you can afford to pay out of pocket at any time.
