Now here’s an interesting fact: according to Statistics Canada the job of truck driver is the most frequently cited occupation of Canadian men. In fact there are over 227,000 Canadian truck drivers – making it one of the top occupations in the country. It’s these truck drivers who keep consumer and industrial goods moving across Canada and to and from the US. Unfortunately, things can go wrong for truck operators – and the cargo they’re carrying can get damaged or lost.
Whether the damage is caused by a collision, a fire, a load being accidentally dumped onto a roadway, or even being run over while waiting to be loaded, the related costs can be incredibly expensive. It’s not just the cost of fixing or replacing the vehicle, you’ll face. It may well be the additional costs of replacing the goods in transit, compensating the customer and supplier or paying for the clear up and associated costs of pollution and debris removal. Never mind any legal expenses. These costs can be crippling to any business. That’s why at Axis Insurance Managers we offer comprehensive Motor Truck Cargo Insurance.
