Insuranceopedia explains Transportation Insurance

Because there is always a risk that goods in transit may be damaged, lost or delayed, businesses like wholesalers, retailers, and distributors can protect their property by purchasing transportation insurance. Coverage depends on the specific policy but may include theft, fire, and other similar perils. Besides opting for transportation insurance, making sure the goods are packed safely and securely also mitigates any loss.
