“We are confident that Aon’s experience will enhance Locomation’s corporate development and strategic plan and will also highlight the benefits of our approach to the insurance community, trucking companies, shippers, and truck drivers themselves,” said Dr. Çetin Meriçli, CEO and co-founder of Locomation. 

The collaboration will also aim to support one of Locomation’s long-term goals of reducing customers’ operating costs through lower insurance rates for carriers, shippers, truck manufacturers and others using Locomation’s autonomous truck technology.

“We’re pleased to work with Locomation to learn how this technology functions in the real world and what it means for safety and insurance coverage,” said Michael Stankard, managing director for Aon’s automotive practice. “Autonomy is going to be part of the future of the trucking industry, and human-guided convoys have the potential to reduce risk and open new opportunities for the entire industry.”
