Colonial Trucking Insurance

Insurance Programs for Trucking Fleets

Container Insurance

Colonial’s Container Insurance program, also referred to as “intermodal insurance”, is tailored for companies specializing in the use of shipping containers in intermodal shipping, including land, train, and ship transport. Intermodal container shipping is one of the fastest growing niches in the trucking industry with consistent increases in both shipping volumes and new trucking jobs each year. Given the complexity of intermodal trucking, few insurance agencies are familiar with providing comprehensive container insurance policies. That’s where Colonial Trucking Insurance comes in.

We encourage you to NEVER base insurance decision solely on price. Normally, when we buy a product we look for the lowest price — if all other things are equal, we take it. If you insure for lower rates, but that company can’t provide good timely service, the lower premiums will not help you out at all when you can’t get loaded due to problems with your insurance. The same is valid when your claim is not covered because your insurance agent sold you a “subprime” policy. Please note that your actual proposal may vary based on underwriting factors such as location, age of driver, MVR and more. Coverages, payment plans, policy terms and conditions vary state by state. No two policies are the same. No two insurance needs are the same either.
