What is it?

Frontier Risk's Motor Truck Cargo Insurance protects cannabis business goods and cargo transported by commercial trucks and motor vehicles against theft, leakage, damage, or loss.

Why is it important?

Motor Truck Cargo Insurance is crucial for protecting your valuable cannabis products and raw materials during transport. With the cost of a pound of weed ranging between $490 and $1,000 excluding taxes (source), the financial impact of loss can be significant. Cannabis businesses lose 2% to 5% of their total inventory due to theft, including theft during transit, highlighting the need for comprehensive coverage.
