There are thousands of players in Australia’s trucking industry. This includes livestock carriers who deliver across various parts of the country. The government makes sure that these businesses comply with safety and public welfare regulations. Violations can run up to thousands in fines, not to mention other risks that these trucks face daily on the road including damage to property, general liability, cargo theft and legal liability.
Many livestock carriers assume that they can save money on insurance costs and forego insurance because their cargo is not too valuable. It is a mistake to think that cargo insurance can be estimated based only on the price of the cargo they carry. A business that transports livestock requires more than cargo insurance but these can all be incorporated in one single cargo insurance policy.
During transport, livestock you carry is exposed to various risks. Hauling livestock is a specialised business that requires not only expertise but also the right business tools, including the best insurance cover. For example, if your trucks are out of commission, you may need temporary vehicle substitution. Death or crippling of livestock can also be covered as well as carcass removal.
So no matter the distance you travel when you transport livestock, you can rely on us to provide you with 24/7 protection.
