Transport Liability Insurance
Australia’s transport and logistics industry faces many unique challenges including high equipment replacement costs, safety risks to heavy motor vehicles, loss or damage to goods in transit, damage to property, injury or death of third parties and more. You need broad insurance coverage for protection against a wide range of risks related to the industry.
Transport operators face three areas of liability in general. These are for general or public liability, carriers’ legal liability and dangerous goods liability.
With transport liability cover, your insurer pays legal costs in defending claims for losses arising from negligence. It can also be extended to subcontractors who operate under your consignment contracts.
It is essential for companies providing freight transportation services to have legal liability cover, accidental damage cover or specified perils cover to ensure your risks are eliminated. With transport liability insurance, you are assured of coverage for legal liability regarding compensation for loss or damage of goods and damage and injury to third parties and their properties.
The transport of goods is an important aspect of many industries and it is critical that you are broadly protected for all risks against your vehicles, cargo and your business in general.
