Great American Insurance Group’s Trucking Division recently released a new FleetFusion program to help motor carriers efficiently manage an independent contractor division. The program consists of three different offerings that improve driver safety, offer roadside assistance and help enhance the carrier’s driver administration system.

Great American says FleetFusion’s Driver Safety Initiative is a proactive approach to increasing driver safety and reducing losses by giving carriers timely, credible information about drivers taking aggressive risks or becoming distracted behind the wheel. This “early warning system” provides details about the incident and materials to help coach drivers on proper procedures.

For the Driver Roadside Assistance benefit, Great American says it has teamed up with Roadside MASTERS, a trucking roadside assistance provider, to service drivers who experience a breakdown and get them back on the road as quickly as possible. The service includes unlimited roadside assistance in the United States and Canada, with such needs as towing, jump starts and delivering gas and other fluids.

The third aspect of FleetFusion is a Motor Carrier Driver Administration System, an internet-based driver-management system that allows carriers to get an accurate picture of their owner-operator business processes. The system provides one location to organize and share driver insurance information, which can help eliminate billing and coverage errors and ensure driver compliance, says Great American.
