Berkshire Hathaway Specialty Insurance announced its Motor Truck Cargo Legal Liability policy intended to protect against the legal liability commercial truckers face when carrying third-party goods.
The new policy is designed for mid-sized Canadian-based motor carriers that specialize in transporting commodities primarily in Canada or cross-border to the United States.
Truckers and cargo are covered anywhere within Canada and the continental United States, according to the Boston-based company.
The new policy is the latest addition to its Marine & Inland Marine suite of products in Canada. The portfolio also includes ocean cargo, builder’s risk and contractor’s equipment products, according to the company.
