Overhaul, a real-time supply chain visibility and risk-management technology provider, has announced the launch of TruckShield, an industry-first, risk-management technology solution for North American motor carriers. TruckShield utilizes existing motor-carrier fleet hardware to identify dangerous or illegal driving practices in real time, and implement corrective actions to avoid situations that can develop due to motor accidents.
TruckShield also defends against predatory legal practices in the event of an accident, digitizes and centralizes insurance, maintenance and safety management. Furthermore, the solution builds a data profile to showcase safety culture to insurers.
“As an owner of a trucking company, I can uniquely relate to the frustration of rising premiums, year-over-year, and the constant threat of a catastrophic verdict that can wipe out a business,” said Barry Conlon, CEO and founder of Overhaul. “TruckShield is going to be a game-changer for North American motor carriers because it can provide unparalleled vulnerability protection, as well as quick insurance claims and cost savings. Within minutes, trucking-company management can monitor who is and who isn’t driving safely.”
Through the app, companies have full visibility into what’s happening across their fleet, and can identify and protect against safety risks like hazardous driving and theft. Motor carriers can also maintain complete records of driver coaching, maintenance performed, and claims made to expedite insurance renewals. TruckShield manages all critical documents related to insurance, maintenance, and safety in one centralized digital location.
Overhaul is a supply chain integrity solutions company that allows shippers to connect disparate sources of data all in a single unified view. This data is then transformed into critical insights that can instantly trigger corrective actions, impacting everything from temperature control to handling requirements or package-level tracking.
