You are stuck in between and have no idea why you should even get these overages. Well, here are the answers you’ve been looking for:
Motor Truck Cargo Insurance: Truckers cargo insurance is meant to protect the cargo or freight you are hauling. The usual coverage is $100,000 worth of coverage for interstate truckers, although some shippers require higher limits to cover cargo over $100,000 in value. It is imperative to check the required limits before accepting any loads or signing load contracts. If the load you are hauling needs more coverage than you currently have, you have to get higher limits through your cargo carrier.
