Every company that transports freight is required by law to provide cargo liability coverage. But why does this matter to shippers? Understanding freight liability – as well as limited liability – will give you a better picture of what happens if your freight is lost, damaged or stolen while being transported.
Any carrier can move freight from point A to point B, but moving your freight damage free can be a different story. Since you can’t ride along with your shipment, make sure that you are doing what you can to help prevent damage or loss of your shipment.
