Paving the Way to Safer Roads with a Digital Freight Network

Convoy recently announced their new predictive crash capability that uses machine learning and automation to qualify safe drivers into their freight network, yielding 16% fewer accidents vs. the industry average. This not only helps keep the roads safer, but it also increases on-time deliveries and cost savings for shippers, with lower claim rates and fewer cargo incidents. Commercial crashes are one of the major contributors to cargo loss, which is estimated to exceed $50 billion globally every year. Today, Convoy experiences a cargo claim less than once per 2,000 loads, whereas the industry experiences a cargo claim about once per 100 loads.
