Truck Brokers’ Contingent Liability

Designed to protect truck brokers in the event one of their contracted truckers has a coverage issue.

The freight brokerage market is poised to grow by $41.47B between now and 2024.

America's trucking industry is the lifeblood of the U.S. economy. In fact, nearly every good consumed in the U.S. is put on a truck at some point. As a result, the trucking industry hauled 72.5% of all freight transported in the United States in 2019, equating to 11.84 billion tons. The trucking industry was a $791.7 billion industry in that same year, representing 80.4% of the nation’s freight bill.
