Transport & Logistics

When we talk about the transport & logistics industry, it refers to businesses that rely heavily on delivering goods that cross borders by land, air, or sea. At its most basic level, transport & logistics insurance is a type of coverage that provides cover for commercial vehicles that are used in the transport of goods.

There are many different policies for this type of insurance, with each policy covering different things. For example, there are separate policies for light vehicles (classified as vehicles under 3 tonnes), heavy vehicles (vehicles over 3 tonnes) and fleets of vehicles, as well as separate policies for couriers and hauliers.

Transport & logistics insurance covers a few different areas along with the relevant liability and transit cover. It depends on the policy as some policies do not cover theft or damage to the driver’s personal property, and it may need to be obtained from another insurance company so that we can provide you with the coverage you need. Some policies cover injuries to third parties, while others will not.

Why Is Transport & Logistics Insurance Important?

Transport & logistics insurance is an essential component of protecting your business and your workers. It doesn’t matter if you are a large company with a fleet, or a small owner-operator business with one or two trucks. The options available for your business or service will change based on the types of services you provide, the kinds of goods that you are moving or carrying, the kinds of risks that your haulage are undertaking and the level of experience that your drivers have.

For example, a company offering long-distance heavy-haulage is going to have different needs compared to a company that transports fruits and veggies in a local area. The insurance that you choose needs to fit the use of your vehicles and the kind of cover you require, without you paying for more than what you need. With that, you’ll need to ensure you’re adequately covered for every possible situation.

When truck and transport incidents occur, it is devastating to everyone who is involved. While we know that these incidents may be rare, they do still occur as accidents can happen anywhere. So, when an incident does take place, it’s vital that everyone involved is supported with the right coverage to make the recovery as smooth as possible.

Our aim is to help and support you in the event you’re faced with an unexpected situation.

We know that having that extra layer of protection for your business will ensure your peace of mind.
