Motor Truck Cargo

Cargo Insurance in Downey, California

High standard insurance for all

Motor Truck Cargo insurance (Cargo) is designed specifically to cover transporters for damaged or lost freight due to causes such as fire, collision, or striking of a load while in transit and during loading or unloading.
