Transport is a critical component of the hemp industry. But transporting hemp can be extremely risky even though hemp is now federally legal due to every state having its own regulations on top of federal regulations. It is imperative that the hemp industry recognizes transportation logistics as a priority and essential expense. Unfortunately, many learn the hard way what can go wrong and that most cargo insurance policies do not cover hemp! It is not unusual to hear about trucks being impounded for weeks, $100,000 loads of isolate being confiscated by law enforcement or cargo being stolen.
For this reason, 357 Hemp Logistics (357), a trusted leader in global hemp transportation became the first in the industry to include, at no additional charge, up to $50,000 of declared value hemp cargo insurance on all domestic and international hemp shipments.
We leave nothing to chance. 357 institutes strict practices and protocols specific to hemp, employs state of the art technology, as well as maintains close communication with law enforcement and regulatory bodies, which helps them in optimizing routes and ensuring they comply with latest regulatory changes. This is all part of going the extra mile to ensure that you can track your entire shipment 24/7 from origin to arriving safely at its destination on time and within budget – no surprises. Our specialized expertise in hemp logistics and attention to detail prevent the costly, and potentially traumatic, results that can occur when companies wing it on transportation.
