Florida trucking companies are mandated by law to have certain minimum levels of liability insurance coverage. As an example, for general freight, the minimum required coverage is $750,000. However, if the trucking company is transporting oil, the minimum coverage would be $1,000,000. Transporting hazardous material has a minimum coverage of $5,000,000.
