National Transport Insurance raises the bar with new partnership and innovative insurance offering

As the country’s number one transport and logistics insurer, National Transport Insurance (NTI) is proud to announce an exclusive partnership and innovative insurance offering with global company Seeing Machines – a recognised industry leader in developing Driver Monitoring System (DMS) technology for the Automotive, Commercial Fleet, Aviation, Rail and Off-Road markets.

The two market leaders have come together to form an exclusive partnership that promotes the benefits of Seeing Machines’ Guardian, the Fleet solution that detects fatigue and distraction related driver events in real time, to NTI policyholders.  

The partnership will provide customers with a range of differentiated commercial offerings and will extend to a collaborative approach around the interrogation of data, collected by Seeing Machines with a view to empower and equip industry and operators with key statistics and insights relating to risk management and insurance.

Exclusive benefits delivered to mutual NTI and Seeing Machines customers through this partnership include: no driver experience restrictions for NTI Fleet and Yellow Cover policies, excess reduction, market value plus, and reinstatement of the Seeing Machines hardware.

Mr Chris Hogarty, Chief Sustainability Officer, says the partnership between NTI and Seeing Machines is built on genuine synergy between values. “We’re committed to the safety and long-term sustainability of Australia’s transport and logistics industry. Together we are ‘walking the talk’, and moving beyond assessing that fleets and transport businesses have safety policies and procedures in place.

“Our exclusive partnership enables NTI to promote the uptake of Seeing Machines’ Guardian technology, whilst also taking advantage of research opportunities and exchange critical data.”

With offices across the USA, Europe and Asia, Seeing Machines’ CEO, Mr Paul McGlone says the adoption of Guardian safety technology is tried and tested in over 16,000 commercial vehicles worldwide. NTI’s offering is a sign of things to come for Australian road safety.

“Seeing Machines works closely with insurers in several countries today. Partnering with NTI in Australia will open up significant opportunities to accelerate growth in our Fleet business locally and create new information based collaboration and services. We are delighted to be working with NTI, who, like Seeing Machines, are focused on customer service as well as road safety.”

The partnership is a reflection of NTI’s commitment to the long-term sustainability of Australia’s transport and logistics industry and the projection of ‘zero heavy vehicle involved fatality rate’ by year 2032, as supported in NTI’s 2019 Major Accident Investigation Report.

The partnership will also explore how Heavy Motor Fleet insurance responds to the incorporation of Seeing Machines’ market-leading and life-saving Guardian technology to reduce heavy vehicle road incidences and improve safety for all road users.
