Why do you need Fuel Haulers/Hazmat Insurance?

Fuel hauler or hazmat truck insurance policies cover liability for incidents like site clean up, loading and unloading incidents, in-transit accidents, contamination and pollution clean up, medical payments and personal injury claims, and lost income or downtime.

Trucking companies usually consider umbrella, or excess liability, coverage on top of existing, or primary, liability policies.

Customers Reviews

CASE STUDY

Company A, a 9-truck carrier, approached CNS due to a problem in their operations. Their surplus lines carrier who was charging $190,000 annually for 9 trucks was canceling their liability insurance. The trucking company called CNS to see what could be done.

CNS reviewed carrier’s roadside safety, performance, driver files, loss ratio history, systems, and process. CNS analyzed the company had no losses but high BASIC SMS scores. Upon further investigation there were only two drivers that had bad records.

CNS developed hiring and qualification standards and implemented these standards within the company. The company also engaged CNS to manage their divers through drivers qualifications, monitoring drivers and training drivers.

As shown in the graph, the clients safety scores improved year after year.

As a result of the improved safety scores NIS was able to secure insurance which saved the company $100,000.00 in annual premium. The client has been a loyal CNS and NIS customer for 6 years.
