Why you need Last-Mile Delivery Insurance


Summary

Property damage, bodily injury, and various third-party lawsuits can fall under the umbrella of a tailored last-mile delivery insurance plan. Consider what would happen if your delivery driver damaged a customer’s property or injured someone while making an active delivery? The legal fees associated with these situations are often astronomical — but last-mile delivery insurance offers innovative solutions.

Property damage

Third-party property damage can result in sky-rocketing legal costs.

Bodily injuries often create mounds of issues in lawsuits, fees, and medical expenses.

What Does Last-Mile Delivery Insurance Cover

Although you’ll have to verify your policy, last-mile delivery insurance covers the following risks:


Injuries

Anytime a company uses vehicles to fulfill a service, the risk of injuring others is a significant threat. Perhaps a delivery driver collides with another vehicle while en-route to a customer and the crash hurts individuals in the other car. Maybe a bike courier loses control while navigating a freshly-paved road, resulting in broken bones and bruising. That said, bodily injury is a top concern for last-mile delivery service companies.


Property damage

Third-party lawsuits pop up all the time because a professional service employee damaged this or that. Consider a vehicle leaking oil on a customer’s driveway. More catastrophic accidents aren’t out of the question, either. Recently, a delivery driver plowed into a self-storage building while experiencing a medical issue. Last-mile delivery service companies take into account even the most bizarre hypotheticals.


Cybersecurity

With the average worldwide cost of a data breach at $4 million, it’s no surprise that on-demand companies consider cybersecurity a top priority. What’s more, last-mile delivery services use apps regularly. Suppose a cybercriminal hacked into your network, causing massive technical issues for your customer base. This crisis could put a devastating halt on your business, causing loss of income and financial damage to your company.
