Internet Truckstop, the Internet-based load board for the transportation industry, has launched CargoMate, a decision support offering that allows carriers, freight brokers and shippers to find affordable, per load cargo insurance.

"Providing an immediate quote, online payment and e-mail distribution of the policy paperwork, CargoMate delivers a fast, effective way to purchase per load cargo insurance," said Joel McGinley, executive consultant with Internet Truckstop. "Our members will now be able to easily and securely purchase the necessary coverage for any approved load, whether or not it is posted on"

Using CargoMate, users can find cargo insurance up to $500,000, regardless of the underlying and existing insurance coverage of the motor carrier.

Available through an arrangement between Internet Truckstop and McGriff, Siebels & Williams, Inc., CargoMate is underwritten by Travelers Property Casualty Company of America.
