Commercial lines insurers are quickly adopting insurance telematics in order to fully realize the benefits telematics offers and restore profitability over more traditional models that have been delivering poor underwriting results. Due to adverse loss frequency and severity trends, including those caused by distracted driving, combined ratios for commercial insurers have risen to over 100%. In fact, the commercial auto underwriting losses grew from $744.8 million to slightly over $2.9 billion in 2016 (a 4x increase)!¹. In order for insurers to stay profitable, steep rates increases have become inevitable, much to the dissatisfaction of their fleet customers.
