What kind of insurance do I need for Expediting or Last Mile Delivery with my Cargo Van or Sprinter

Expediters have established an industry standard for insurance limits and operate on an Unlimited Radius. Brokers usually require Expedite Independent Contractors to carry these limits of insurance coverage to bid on load boards: 

Primary Commercial Auto Liability$1,000,000 CSL
Cargo$100,000

Last Mile Delivery Independent Contractors operate closer to home.  Their insurance requirements differ depending on their contracts.

For example, their Primary Commercial Auto Liability limit requirement may be $300,000 instead of $1,000,000.  Frequently their Cargo limits are lower as well.

However, the additional insurance coverage General Liability is often required to bid on Last Mile Delivery Loadboards.

When Independent Contractors Lease On to a bigger Motor Carrier their insurance is different.
Because the Independent Contractor is operating under the Motor Carrier’s DOT Authority, the Motor Carrier provides the Primary Commercial Auto Liability.  Per contract, the Owner Operator is still responsible for providing Non-Trucking Liability which means he’s insuring himself while not operating on behalf of the Motor Carrier.

Primary Commercial Auto Liability costs much more because it insures 24/7.

Non-Trucking Liability costs much less because it’s only part time coverage.

Non-Trucking Liability can be tricky.  If you plan to lease on to a Motor Carrier learn more here about NTL:
