There are more than 46,000 registered businesses in Australia’s trucking industry. Safety is a high priority for those who work in the industry. Drivers and operators are regulated by government compliance regulations that look after protecting public welfare and environmental and property damages.
Carriers insurance is important for all trucking operators. It covers transport operators for any amounts they are legally liable to pay for loss or damage of goods in transit. This type of truck insurance pays for damages to a customer’s freight as specified in the policy while under the custody of the carrier.
Road freight transport service providers transporting non-owned freight are insured under consignment conditions for accidental damage. It also covers against specified risks for all general freight, dangerous goods, refrigerated goods and livestock.
Carrier’s transit insurance can also cover legal costs, driver’s personal effects, debris removal, theft, non-delivery and other additional expenses. Additional benefits may include peril cover for loading and unloading, pilferage, shedding of load, and refrigerated goods or temperature-controlled loads.
