There are many possible liable parties in this type of situation:
- The truck driver -- truck drivers are expected to ensure that cargo is true correctly loaded and secured before driving off
- The person or party responsible for loading the cargo at the cargo bay or destination
- The truck carrier
- The person or party who owns the cargo
