Why do freight forwarders and brokers need insurance?

Freight broker insurance coverage helps your business comply with state laws, which often set minimum requirements for commercial auto liability insurance. Shippers also might ask for proof of a general liability policy in a contract. Maintaining coverage is in the shipper's interest and yours as well, as it can cover legal defense costs and other unforeseen expenses.
