VANCOUVER, B.C. — Zurich Canada has created a transportation package policy that it says is specially designed for B.C. truckers.
Its British Columbia Transportation (BCT) package policy is geared towards the specific needs of transportation providers in B.C., the company says.
“This package policy responds to the needs of professionally managed B.C. transportation companies by offering products for their fleet, warehousing, cargo, property and liability exposures,” said Angelique Magi, national director of transportation for commercial markets, Zurich Canada. “Having one insurance company provide a holistic solution for our customers’ insurance needs is not only convenient; it reduces the potential for coverage gaps and allows their insurance program to grow as their business grows and diversifies.”
The integrated plan offers: excess auto liability, heavy equipment physical damage coverage, cargo and commercial general liability coverage combined into one policy to reduce gaps in coverage; coverage for terminals, warehouses, property, crime, environmental pollution and other needs; optional per-occurrence deductibles on specified lines of business affected by a single claim; maximum limits applied to each line of business separately; cross-border filings with 24-hour turnaround on US filings to keep trucks moving cross-border at no added cost; specialized transportation claims professionals to help truckers in the US and Canada, including a major case unit for catastrophic loss; risk services tools that help assess hazards and recognize safe drivers; and a spill reporting service that provides direct access to a dedicated team.
