Motive, a fleet management company formerly known as KeepTruckin, has announced a partnership with Progressive Commercial to offer Motive’s market-leading AI-based safety solution to Progressive Commercial customers.

The new partnership is aimed at helping customers increase safety and cut insurance costs to help improve their return on investment as they’re forced to do more with less in the face of increased regulation and macroeconomic pressure.

“Insurance is one of the top five largest expenses for truckers,” said Luke Harmer, Progressive Commercial product development manager. “With our Smart Haul program, we are helping truckers turn their ELD requirement into savings on their insurance premiums.”

Insurance Journal recently published an in-depth story about trucking sector challenges, which include ongoing driver shortages, rising operational costs, skyrocketing medical and litigation costs and more.

The Motive Driver Safety solution – including the Motive AI Dashcam and Vehicle Gateway – provides driver safety features that reduce accidents and can decrease insurance premiums.

The solution:

  • Accurately detects safety issues such as seatbelt violations, close following, or hard cornering.
  • Prevents accidents by alerting drivers to unsafe behavior in real-time.
  • Provides safety managers with full visibility into the safety behavior of every driver and uncovering any blind spots.
  • Uses video recording to assist drivers with unjustified claims and lawsuits.
  • Coaches drivers via automated coaching and facilitating in-person coaching sessions.

Motive and Progressive Commercial are offering a 40-50% monthly per vehicle subsidy on the Motive Driver Safety solution that collects data about driver behavior and provides insights into safety risks and ways to address them.

Motive has also been named as one of Progressive Commercial’s preferred vendors in its Smart Haul program. Through the Progressive Commercial Smart Haul program, eligible customers who use Motive for ELD compliance can qualify for insurance savings.
