If you're in the courier, haulage, freight, cargo or removals trades, whilst it's not a legal requirement, goods in transit insurance is regarded as a business essential.
That's true whether you're a single driver operation shifting boxes locally, or running an international road freight or marine cargo business.
Outside of the freight and haulage sector, it can also provide invaluable protection for the carriage of own goods within general businesses of all shapes and sizes.
As the name suggests, it covers goods for theft, loss or accidental damage whilst they are being transported. Most policies will also cover goods as they are being loaded or unloaded.
Some policies may also insure goods whilst they are stored overnight in your company vehicles. Of course here underwriters will require you to take sensible security precautions such as locking doors and using secure parking facilities.
