WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PRIMARY LIABILITY AND NON-TRUCKING LIABILITY?

WHAT IS BLANKET LESSEE COVERAGE?
This coverage is used if the insured trip leases under someone else’s authority. Generally when this is done, the driver signs a "hold-harmless agreement." In order for there to be coverage when you are not operating under your own authority, you would need this coverage on your policy.

Your company is always responsible when the trailer is in your care, custody and control. Unless you have a "hold harmless agreement" signed by the other party, the responsibility is yours.
