Trucking moves America.
According to the American Trucking Associations, more than 72 percent of goods moved in the United States ship by truck. Trucks carry goods worth more than $732 billion each year.
And that’s why the commercial insurance on those trucks and their cargo is an important part of the American economy.
Whether your commercial fleet is one truck or 50, every day brings hazards to the road in the form of collisions, fire, and theft of your truck or cargo.

Trucking comes in a variety of sizes and industries. Our commercial truck insurance portfolio is versatile enough to meet any trucking needs.
Our standard policies offer the following:
- Liability Insurance: Covers damage you cause others in an at-fault accident. Most states require liability insurance. This coverage addresses medical bills and, in some cases, death benefits. Property liability coverage pays for damage to others’ property, such as vehicles and structures.
- Collision Insurance: Covers damage to your vehicle after a crash.
- Comprehensive Insurance: Pays for damage from non-accident events, like theft or weather damage.
- Medical Coverage: Pays for your own medical bills and those of your passengers. It may also cover death expenses.
- Uninsured/underinsured Insurance: Insures you against damage caused by individuals without appropriate liability coverage.
In addition to the standard auto coverage, we carry additional coverages specific to the trucking industry.
