Reliance Partners is one of the nation’s leaders when it comes to flatbed trucking insurance. Flatbed is unique in the fact that cargo is more susceptible to theft, loads are more prone to cargo claims, and the knowledge needed to safely transport open deck commodities is much different than other modes.
It is important that flatbed haulers properly identify their cargo as many policies have exclusion for commodities such as steel coils or machinery and may even exclude coverage for dampness or based on driver negligence (i.e. holes in tarps). It is important that trucking companies read their policy and request broad form coverage so that there will be adequate protection.
