Environmental Transportation

This program offers the ISO "Pollution Liability-Broadened Coverage for Covered Autos" (CA 9948) and is available for both trucking and business auto risks.
Hazardous materials transportation

Environmental transportation can be a slippery slope. We help you get the traction you need.

Transporting hazardous materials creates its own set of risks. According to the U.S. Departments of Transportation and Commerce, there are over 1.5 billion tons of hazardous materials transported each year in the United States either by truck, train, boat, or aircraft. A vehicle accident that results in an environmental hazard is, for most businesses, an occasional occurrence. Yet thinking ahead and being prepared is key. 

Our exclusive environmental transportation program can help your transportation clients handle accidents and spill emergencies. Rely on Amwins National Transportation Underwriters' expertise to deliver the environmental transportation insurance solution your clients need.
