What Insurance Companies
Look for in Truck Drivers
Bruce offers a review of a recent ISBMEE seminar which took a look at how insurance companies are looking at drivers and the type of information they want and what they expect drivers to do when an incident occurs. Bruce offers information on how you can improve your driving career by making sure you fit the profile that the insurance company wants in order to insure their drivers. Also included is an overview of how fleets are using technology to increase productivity and efficiency in their fleets.
