If you work in the transportation and warehousing industry, then you already know that much more goes into the field than simply shipping something from one location to another.
It is not enough to organize this shipment. You must also protect the goods both before, during, and after shipment. This is where insurance comes in.
Read on to understand what insurance you may need.
The specific kind of insurance you need in this industry depends completely on the type of transportation and warehousing you provide. Take a look at some of the most common forms of insurance in the industry to see what may work for you.
If you have a transportation business, you likely have a fleet of vehicles and your drivers are never guaranteed to not get into an accident. This insurance protects your business from a range of liability issues and property damage and might even be a requirement if you transport people or hazardous material.
If you transport or store merchandise or products for a third party, then you have the responsibility for those products while they are in your possession. This type of insurance coverage usually protects you in the case of natural or man-made disasters, infestation, contamination, theft, fourth party warehouse arrangements, and even exposure to extreme temperatures and loss of refrigeration.
If you ship your goods on any other way than by water, then this is the perfect type of protection for your business. Inland Marine Insurance protects goods that are being shipped on trains, barges, planes, or any other way that is not on the water. It can protect you from potential loss and can even protect your goods while they are being help in custody by a bailee.
The cost of insurance depends on a variety of factors. The price you will pay can be based on the type of insurance you need, the types of goods you handle, the form of shipping, claims history, age of your business, and much more.
