Asset-based truckers issue bills of lading and are designated as common carriers by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Since the contract of carriage (bill of lading) is between the trucker and the cargo owner, the trucker will be first in line for any claims for cargo loss or damage. The FMCSA no longer requires that all common carriers maintain a Motor Cargo Legal Liability insurance policy with a minimum limit of liability; however, most carriers maintain at least $100,000 USD for commercial reasons.

Motor Truck Cargo Legal Liability insurance policies may be written to include debris removal, pollutant cleanup or removal, and other features.
