Internet Truckstop is now offering cargo insurance, up to $500,000, regardless of a carrier’s existing insurance coverage.

The program, called CargoMate, allows carriers, freight brokers and shippers the ability to get an immediate quote, secure payment online and receive the policy paperwork via e-mail. It is available at truckstop.com by clicking on the CargoMate tab.

“We are excited to bring this outstanding offering exclusively to Internet Truckstop members. Our members will now be able to easily and securely purchase the necessary coverage for any approved load, whether or not it is posted on truckstop.com,” said Joel McGinley, executive consultant with Internet Truckstop, an Internet-based load board.

CargoMate is available through an arrangement between Internet Truckstop and McGriff, Siebels & Williams, Inc., and is underwritten by Travelers Property Casualty Company of America.
