Bridges around the world are aging, roadways are more congested, and businesses with commercial fleets are facing greater risks than ever before. We provide a range of products and services to meet the needs of commercial auto insurers. Our standardized policy program covers a wide range of commercial vehicles and exposures and allows insurers to tailor coverage for their customers.

Our telematics offerings help you get a better understanding of risk based on driving behavior and patterns. By knowing where individual vehicles travel and by gaining insight into their speed and control, insurers can offer discounts to individual commercial drivers or entire fleets.

Our predictive modeling tools help you evaluate your commercial auto risks with more accuracy; target your marketing, underwriting, and pricing efforts; and discover new opportunities to improve your competitive differentiation.

We offer motor vehicle reports (MVRs) that give you information on your potential insureds' traffic violations and accidents — helping you underwrite commercial auto policies effectively. We also provide a reporting service that satisfies your statutory obligations to report auto coverage to state DMVs.
