Truck explosion reminds companies of the importance of truck insurance

A recent truck explosion in Pennsylvania serves as an unfortunate reminder of the importance of wholesale commercial trucking company insurance.

Carlsbad, United States - May 12, 2018 /PressCable/ —

A recent truck explosion in Pennsylvania serves as an unfortunate reminder of the importance of wholesale commercial trucking company insurance. “On the morning of Wednesday, May 9th, trucker Stephen Miller died as a result of a fiery acetylene tank explosion in the back of the truck he was driving,” said an Insurance Truck company spokesperson. “Unfortunate incidents such as these remind trucking and logistics companies how critical it is to have wholesale truck insurance for all of their vehicles to protect their cargo, their capital, and their people.”

In the case of the recent Ono, PA, explosion, it’s hoped that the trucking company had seen the value in wholesale truck insurance before the accident so that they can now lean on that reassurance in such an unfavorable circumstance. While insurance could never replace the loss of a life, it can help protect the precious people, vehicles, and freight should such an incident occur.

Insurance Truck utilizes quoting software that helps those looking for Auto Liability and MTC coverage quotes. For commercial trucking companies, the most important thing is MTC, or Motor Truck Cargo coverage. This plan covers liability for damage to cargo that is caused by fire, collision, striking, or accidental dumping. MTC coverage includes the cost of removing debris or lost cargo, recovery of any pollutants, and prevention of further cargo lost. If the company that suffered the explosion in Pennsylvania had MTC coverage, at least the gas, air tanks, and welding equipment in the truck will be covered by insurance.

While the cargo is a precious commodity, there is nothing more precious than human life. The other product that Insurance Truck offers, auto liability insurance, protects the vehicle and the driver from claims or injuries on the road in the event of an accident. This may have protected Miller and his family after the accident.

While no one likes to think about the possibility of accidents, it’s important to be prepared for them. Become a member of Insurance Truck and get an instant quote today to minimize risk and protect what matters.

Australian state leader intervenes to approve coal mine

May 27, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — An Australian state government leader intervened on Wednesday to fast-track a proposed coal mine days after voters rejected tougher action to curb greenhouse gas emissions in the country's general election. The Carmichael mine proposed by India's Adani Mining in Queensland state was a bitterly polarizing issue ahead of Saturday's national election, which returned the conservative coalition government for a third three-year term. The election result defied opinion polls that suggested the center-left Labor Party would win government and implement its policies of slashing Australia's greenhouse gas emissions by 45% below 2005 levels by 2030. The coalition had...

Leaders campaign until the end of Australian election day

May 27, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Political leaders continued frenetic 11th-hour campaigning as Australians vote on Saturday in an election likely to deliver the nation's sixth prime minister in as many years. Opinion polls suggest the conservative Liberal Party-led coalition will lose its bid for a third three-year term and Scott Morrison will have had one of the shortest tenures as prime minister in the 118-year history of the Australian federation. Morrison is the conservatives' third prime minister since they were first elected in 2013. He replaced Malcolm Turnbull in a leadership ballot of government colleagues in August. Morrison began the day campaigning...

Political hero's death overshadows Australian campaign

May 27, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's opposition leader said he wants to win elections on Saturday for his Australian political hero whose death overshadows the final days of campaigning. The death of former Prime Minister Bob Hawke at his Sydney home on Thursday has turned the national focus to the legacy of his center-left Labor Party government, which modernized the Australian economy from 1983 until 1991. The immensely popular 89-year-old had given his imprimatur to opposition leader Bill Shorten, who opinion polls suggest is the favorite to win the election. Shorten said on Friday that Hawke had given him his "blessing" when...

Australian opposition party vows big surpluses if elected

May 27, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia's opposition party on Friday promised to deliver bigger budget surpluses if it wins elections next week, while the ruling coalition warned the policies would harm the economy. Center-left Labor Party lawmakers Chris Bowen and Jim Chalmers outlined a policy to reduce tax breaks for landlords and some shareholders which they say would save 154 billion Australian dollars ($108 billion) over the next decade. "We can deliver these bigger budget surpluses and the bigger investments of health and education," said Bowen, who would become treasurer in a Labor government. The conservative government, which is seeking a third...
