Michelin, HDI partner for fleet risk reduction

Michelin and commercial insurance provider HDI Global SE have entered into a partnership to reduce road risk for vehicle fleets. Fleet vehicles will be equipped with a connected box to collect driving data, which is processed and fed back to the driver via the Ideal Driver Pro application and to the fleet manager via an indicator report. Through this method each vehicle will produce a “driving score,” designed to increase understanding of the impact of driving behaviour on claims rates, and to identify risky driving behaviours and provide professionals with the necessary means to raise awareness and train drivers with a coaching module.

HDI will promote this innovative approach among its company fleet clients. A first step in the introduction of a collaborative ecosystem between Michelin and HDI: feedback will enable HDI and Michelin to develop new solutions as early as 2022. Initially Euromaster France will roll out the collaboration from the first quarter 2020 with the installation of the initial boxes in its fleet vehicles.

Sonia Artinian-Fredou, Michelin Group executive committee member, said: “Through our DDI and HDI solutions, Michelin is enhancing its offering of connected solutions for fleets, which will encourage increasingly safe, efficient and sustainable mobility. This partnership with HDI will enable us to work together to build tomorrow’s connected insurance.”

Florence Louppe, managing director of HDI Global SE France, added: “Michelin and HDI Global share many common values and objectives. I am delighted about this new area of collaboration, which innovatively combines big data and risk management for the benefit of our corporate customers.”

HDI has a global network and expertise in corporate risks, while Michelin business DDI (Driving Data to Intelligence) was created in 2015 to capture, process and analyse driving data. DDI also manages the Better Driving Community – a community of drivers committed to improving road safety.
