The trucking industry is a vital part of the economy of this country. It’s safe to say that most industries rely on trucks to deliver goods to them so they, in return can manufacture things and put them out to markets and customers they serve. The United States economy depends on our truckers to deliver over 10 billion tons of various commodities. That’s $700.4 billion worth of goods hauled by trucks across the United States. Interruptions in the transportation force will result in major economic issues affecting all parts of the U.S. economy.
It is easy to see why having a reliable truck is the most important tool in this trade. And when it comes to rolling down the highway, the right insurance is not just for peace-of-mind, it’s the law.
According to the latest data, nearly 4,000 large trucks and buses were involved in fatal crashes in 2014, a 5-percent decline from 2013. Deadly crashes and the dangers on the road might be avoidable, but the proper truck insurance is definitely a must.
