Depending on the location of your business and other factors, certain types might be better for you than others.
Workers' Compensation Insurance
This insurance helps protect your business if an employee is injured, contracts an illness, or dies as a result of an incident on the job. When it comes to insurance for transportation companies, this is especially important. It can cover medical costs, legal fees, and lost wages due to the injury.chevron_rightWorkers' Compensation
Business Owners Policy
Also called property & liability insurance, a business owners policy (BOP), combines general liability insurance with coverage for your company’s property. You'll get protection for the building you own, space you lease, and any property needed to run your business, while also receiving coverage for things like business interruption. This can replace lost income, as well as cover other costs associated with getting your business back up and running after suffering property damage, such as the use of a temporary location. You can also tailor your BOP with add-ons including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.chevron_rightProperty & Liability
Commercial Auto Insurance
This kind of transport insurance is ideal if your company owns or leases vehicles, this policy protects your business and its vehicles. This type of insurance can provide coverage for your legal fees and the medical costs of others if your employee is at fault in an accident. It can also cover the cost of physical damage to your vehicles and on-hook towing. Plus, in for-hire trucking, you can purchase add-ons for your policy like rental reimbursement with downtime, downtime coverage, cargo liability, uninsured/underinsured motorists, and trailer interchange. And, commercial auto insurance can provide coverage even if the vehicle is used for personal activities outside of its primary business use.chevron_rightProfessional Liability
General Liability Insurance
Also known as commercial liability insurance, a general liability policy is important. The policy covers damages and legal costs associated with injury claims to customers and other people you don't employ, damage to other people's property that was caused by your business, and medical costs associated with these incidents. It also covers libel, slander, and copyright infringement. Plus, there are endorsements you can add to customize your policy, including cyber, hired and non-owned auto liability, employment-related practices liability, and employee benefits liability.chevron_rightGeneral Liability
This coverage can be purchased as an add-on to a general liability, professional liability, or BOP policy.
