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.

In most global of settings, UN ponders populism's problems

Sep 26, 2018

UNITED NATIONS — Warning that the world has a bad case of "trust deficit disorder" and risks "runaway climate change," U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged global leaders Tuesday to abandon unilateralism and reinvigorate cooperation as the only way to tackle the challenges and threats of increasingly chaotic times. The U.N. chief painted a grim picture of the state of the world in his opening address to the annual gathering of presidents, prime ministers, monarchs and government officials from the U.N.'s 193 member nations. He pointed to rising polarization and populism, ebbing cooperation, "fragile" trust in international institutions and "outrage" at...

Japan preschools using tablets to prep tots for digital age

Sep 26, 2018

YOSHIKAWA, Japan — It's drawing time at this suburban nursery school in Japan, but instead of crayons, tiny fingers are tapping on colors on iPad screens and taking selfies. Digital schooling has arrived in this nation long known for its zealous commitment to "three R's" education. Coby Preschool, in a small town northeast of Tokyo, is among nearly 400 kindergartens and nursery schools in Japan that are using smartphone software applications designed especially for preschoolers called KitS. That's only about 1 percent of this nation's kindergartens and nursery schools. But it's a start. Coby is helping lead a national initiative...

Governments to discuss tackling tuberculosis at UN summit

Sep 26, 2018

UNITED NATIONS — Governments from around the world will gather Wednesday to discuss the persistent scourge of tuberculosis, which last year claimed more lives than any other communicable disease. About 1.3 million people worldwide died of TB in 2017. A further 300,000 people with both HIV and TB died in last year, according to World Health Organization figures released this month. Once referred to as 'consumption' because of the way sufferers appear to waste away, tuberculosis has been known for centuries. The bacterium responsible for TB was discovered 136 years ago and the development of an effective antibiotic helped rich...

NASA's Mars Opportunity rover seen, but still not heard

Sep 26, 2018

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. — NASA's Mars rover, Opportunity, has been seen, but still not heard. A spacecraft around Mars has sent back a photo of Opportunity, which has been silent ever since a massive dust storm engulfed the red planet in late spring. The rover appears in the photo as a pale dot. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter took the picture last week from 166 miles (267 kilometers) up. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory released the photo Tuesday. The global dust storm prevented sunlight from reaching Opportunity's solar panels, and the rover fell silent in June. Although the skies have cleared considerably,...
