Trucking is a high-risk business with a very real potential for catastrophic losses. It can happen in the blink of an eye on any road, anywhere, regardless of the weather or traffic. Primary truck liability insurance can be the difference between staying on the road and financial ruin.
If you own one truck or a large fleet, primary trucking liability insurance coverage is essential. The state of Texas requires a minimum limit of $500,000 CSL per tractor-trailer for all intrastate carriers operating within the state. The US DOT requires a minimum limit of $750,000 CSL per tractor-trailer for interstate carriers operating long haul. However, the majority of all truckers regardless of their radius and filings carry a minimum limit of 1,000,000 CSL. This is because most shippers and freight brokers require the 1,000,000 limit before they will load you to haul their freight.
