Haulage and freight forwarding firms, transporting goods and materials on behalf of other companies need a goods in transit insurance policy that will protect the cargo whilst it is in their custody and control and until it reaches its final destination.

Gauntlet Haulage can cover all sectors of the market, whether you are a haulage or groupage firm moving bulk aggregate, or a man in a van engaged in courier-style operations.  Our comprehensive goods in transit policy provides complete cover for all scenarios and is usually a mandatory insurance for anyone delivering goods for hire and reward. 

Loads can be subjected to all sorts of risk whilst on the road – theft, vandalism, spillage, hijack and wilful damage of stock being just some.  Those operating cross-Channel routes have their own particular risks to face, so goods in transit insurance is a necessity, not a nice-to-have. 

Whether you are a haulier with a single lorry, or a national multi-truck groupage operation requiring multiple levels of cover, our goods in transit insurance policy will provide peace of mind in a sector that faces more threats than most. 

Some of the specific areas that our goods in transit policies cover are:  

  • Own or customers’ goods
  • Loss or damage to property in transit
  • Deterioration of stock
  • Theft and loss of, and damage to, goods
  • Hijacking
  • Personal effects left in the vehicle
  • High risk and hazardous loads 

The policies will enable your business to benefit from: 

  • Bespoke cover, tailored to your own firm
  • Legal defence costs, if a law suit is brought against you


We can provide cover for both the UK and Europe and offer protection for either single vehicles or multi-vehicle haulage fleets.  Our haulage team has the experience to advise on exactly what cover you need in place to satisfy your haulage contracts and protect your loads and cargo. 

Gauntlet Haulage understands the need for prompt service and always ensures that a customer receives their insurance documentation instantly.  It also goes to great lengths to understand your business – something that call centres struggle to do – and this enables us to deliver tangible savings to our customers, by assessing their risk management strategies and finding loopholes that can be addressed.

We can also often offer you combined goods in transit and engineering inspection insurance, which can provide a broad-based level of cover for all your operations. 

Our aim is always to arrange the best goods in transit protection that we can for you … which will be there for you whenever the unexpected happens.
