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.

Companies bracing for China's retaliation in tariffs dispute

May 24, 2019

BEIJING — Companies were bracing Monday for how Beijing might retaliate against President Donald Trump's escalation of a fight over technology and trade that threatens to disrupt a Chinese economic recovery. Regulators have threatened "necessary countermeasures" for Trump's tariff hikes Friday on $200 billion of Chinese imports. But three days later, in a break with previous tit-for-tat penalties that were imposed immediately, Beijing had yet to announce what it might do. A foreign ministry spokesman said Monday that he had no details about Chinese plans or high-level contacts since negotiations ended Friday without a deal. "We are determined and capable...

Singapore reportedly criminalizes publication of fake news

May 24, 2019

SINGAPORE — Singapore reportedly has passed a law criminalizing publication of fake news and allowing the government to block and order the removal of such content. The Protection from Online Falsehoods and Manipulation Bill passed Wednesday night by a vote of 72-9, a lawmaker with the opposition Worker's Party, Daniel Goh, said on Twitter. The law bans falsehoods that are prejudicial to Singapore or likely to influence elections and requires service providers to remove such content or allows the government to block it. Offenders could face a jail term of up to 10 years and hefty fines. Opponents in Parliament...

Experimental surgery gains support as opioid deaths rise

May 24, 2019

SHANGHAI — Patient Number One is a thin man, with a scabby face and bouncy knees. His head, shaved in preparation for surgery, is wrapped in a clean, white cloth. Years of drug use cost him his wife, his money and his self-respect, before landing him in this drab yellow room at a Shanghai hospital, facing the surgeon who in 72 hours will drill two small holes in his skull and feed electrodes deep into his brain. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction, quite literally, with the flip of a switch. The treatment — deep brain stimulation...

China's April exports fall amid US tariff war; imports rise

May 24, 2019

BEIJING — China's exports fell in April amid a punishing tariff war with Washington, adding to pressure on Beijing on the eve of negotiations aimed at settling the fight over its technology ambitions. Wednesday's announcement of trade data followed President Donald Trump's surprise threat of more tariff hikes on Chinese goods, which jolted global financial markets. April exports sank 2.7% from a year ago to $193.5 billion, a reverse from March's 14.2% growth, customs data showed. That was markedly weaker than private sector forecasts of growth in low single digits. Imports rose 4% to $179.6 billion, rebounding from the previous...

Chinese researchers try brain implants to treat drug addicts

May 24, 2019

SHANGHAI — The sound of doctors boring through his skull to feed electrodes deep into his brain made Yan tremble. "The drill was like bzzzzzzz," he later recalled. "The moment of drilling is the most terrible." Yan is a methamphetamine addict. The hope is that technology will extinguish his addiction — quite literally, with the flip of a switch. The treatment — deep brain stimulation — has long been used for movement disorders like Parkinson's. Now, the first clinical trial of DBS for methamphetamine addiction is being conducted at Shanghai's Ruijin Hospital, along with trials for opioid addicts. Yan is...
