What is Transportation Insurance?

Every day millions of trucks traverse America's roads and highways, transporting the products that keep the economy moving. With 72.5% of all freight by weight in the United States carried by trucks, insurers play a crucial role in an industry that employs millions of people and keeps our shops and warehouses stocked.

AmTrust’s Commercial Transportation Insurance coverage provides both large and small truck fleet owners with the peace of mind they need to keep freight moving quickly and on time. Our fleet and Transportation Insurance coverage line options offer major benefits that agents trust to keep fleet owners across the country protected.

Why Choose AmTrust for Transportation Industry Insurance?

AmTrust provides insurance for small and large commercial fleets, from trucking companies serving local areas to those that cover the entire country. Because we can insure all fleet sizes, our agents have the flexibility of being able to market our product to a wide range of businesses. We understand the complex logistics of running a large trucking fleet, while also offering a line of coverage suited for small trucking fleets of less than 20 units.

With an A- (Excellent) rating from A.M. Best, AmTrust always seeks to deliver superior services at a rate that is both fair and affordable. Fleet owners can rest easy knowing that their business's insurance needs are in safe hands. Our specialized line of Transportation Insurance means never having to worry about coverage and peace-of-mind for a variety of products.

What Types of Transportation Insurance is Available?

Our preferred exposures are generally low risk, such as dry van, cargo, intermodal and refrigerated trucks. We avoid riskier exposures such as cattle and livestock, garbage haulers, and sand and gravel trucks. Focusing on low-risk exposures helps keep our premiums competitive while also maintaining profitability for our company and our agents.

The product we offer can also be tailored to fit the demands of individual fleets. We provide $1 million Combined Single Limit auto liability for fleets with the ability to write up to $2 million. Additionally, while our maximum coverage for motor truck cargo is $500,000, we can customize this figure for loads that are valued lower. Our full line of coverage for both large and small fleets includes:
  • Auto Liability
  • Auto Physical Damage
  • General Liability
  • Motor Truck Cargo
  • Trailer Interchange
  • Hired/Non-owned

Here are just a few of the things that Inland Marine insurance might cover:
  • Contractor’s equipment
