Livestock Transit Coverage
Protect Your Livestock
Cargo All the Way
Hauling livestock is a specialized business that requires expertise and care. The risk associated with an overturned truck loaded with livestock is far different than handling an overturned truck loaded with most other cargo. As a leading carrier of livestock transit insurance, The Hartford has many years of experience servicing these types of claims with local and speedy support.
