RLI Transportation, a division of specialty insurer RLI Corp., has partnered with an Industrial Internet of Things (IoT) firm, Samsara, to provide relevant customers with enhanced loss control resources.
Samsara, which boasts a growing suite of solutions, is a provider of sensors and software designed to manage vehicle fleets and industrial operations.
Under the partnership, RLI Transportation’s clients within the large trucking, public auto, and commercial specialty auto industries are provided with improved loss control resources via free dashboard cameras, telematics devices and data analytics, all of which provide real time visibility to fleet vehicle operations and also customised loss control consultations.
As an incentive, insureds that participate and implement the Samsara solution can receive up to a 5% insurance premium credit.
Mike Haswell, RLI Transportation Vice President, Business Development and Retention, commented: “Our customers are consistently looking to improve their results through tools that enhance driver safety.
“Samsara’s video-based solution provides drivers with real time coaching to reduce the frequency and severity of accidents. It also helps transportation companies improve the overall safety of their fleet by providing greater visibility into hard-to-detect driving events like harsh braking, rolling stops, near-misses, speeding and distracted driving.”
Iain Denham, Senior Director of Global Partner Sales at Samsara, added: “We are very excited to partner with RLI. Samsara is always looking for new ways to surprise and delight our customers, and RLI shares that passion. This is demonstrated in their innovative approach to investing in their customers’ safety programs.”
