Livestock Hauler’s face unique risks

As a livestock hauler the risks you face are unique to you and your insurance should reflect that. Livestock Hauler’s insurance will provide coverage for anything from accidents and vehicle breakdown to animal escape, injury or death.

Safety is especially important when you are charged with hauling live animals. These loads are particularly difficult: the well-being of the animals being transported can easily be jeopardized, and as a driver you are forced to compensate as the weight in the load continually shifts. This leaves significantly less room for driver error, which could result in jackknifing, tipping or loss of control. In the case of transporting animals you will need to be covered for more than just the cost of injury and property damage. You may require Livestock Transit Coverage and Carcass Removal Coverage or other industry specific types of insurance.

Whether you are hauling cattle, pigs, horses or other livestock you face risks specific to live cargo:

  • Escaped livestock – livestock that escapes can cause accidents and be costly to recapture.
  • Injury or Death of livestock – animals that are injured or killed during loading, transport or unloading are a significant loss. Being held up by an accident or road closure or getting caught in unfavourable weather conditions could have devastating results when hauling livestock.

At CMB we will be sure you have the proper coverage to protect you in the case of any issues that could put your business at risk.
