Alaska Truck Insurance Requirements
Alaska state law asks local truck drivers and new ventures to have a certain amount of liability insurance. How much you need depends on the type of freight you haul and where you haul it. If you don’t cross state lines, you must get an intrastate only USDOT Number and have a minimum amount of insurance:
|$750,000||Liability Insurance (General Freight)|
|$1,000,000||Liability Insurance (Oil Transport)|
|$5,000,000||Liability Insurance (Hazmat)|
|$300,000||Liability Insurance (Household Goods)|
The insurance requirements for truck drivers who travel out-of-state are more rigorous. In addition to the above, you must comply with all the semi truck insurance requirements recommended by the FMCSA. Typical federal liability limits are $750,000 or $1,000,000.
Both Alaska and the USDOT require certain filings be submitted by your insurance agent. Your insurance agent or insurance company should take care of these filings for you. These forms show the government that all your DOT truck insurance requirements are fulfilled. They must be submitted before you can receive your authority. Some common forms include:
- The BMC-91
- Form MCS-90
- Form E
