Freight Brokers, Be Aware!

We’ve heard of more incidents in which a Motor Carrier provided a Broker a fraudulent Certificate of Insurance which can lead to various issues including cargo theft.

Below are a few Broker best practices when screening Motor Carriers:

  • Require the Motor Carrier to identify the driver and VIN number to be used for the specific shipment on the Certificate of Insurance
  • Require that the Certificate of Insurance comes directly from the motor carrier’s insurance agent
  • See links for a Insurance Requirement Checklist and Sample Certificate of Insurance
