MAYFIELD VILLAGE, OH… Progressive Commercial Insurance is trying to make the ELD mandate that takes effect on December 17th of this year a little easier for their customers by introducing a new ELD program named Smart Haul. Progressive customers may receive a free ELD to use from Progressive if the customer shares their data, Progressive will also pay the monthly service fee. The data is for research only and will not affect rates. 

An additional option is to purchase an ELD from one of Progressive’s vendors and Progressive will give you a $500 gift card for sharing data with them.

Progressive suggests that customers who get and begin using their ELD well before the mandate takes effect can acclimate themselves to the device and determine how/if the ELD will affect your business while still relying on paper logs. Then drivers can adjust accordingly before the mandate deadline.

Professional Truck Drivers are encouraged to visit for more information about Progressive’s Smart Haul program, as well as other trucking lifestyle information.

Progressive Commercial strives to remain flexible to meet the needs of their commercial customers and help make their lives and careers a little easier.

Progressive has a network of 100 commercial vehicle repair center across the country to help expedite repairs for Professional Truck Drivers. Customers may also do the repairs themselves or use the shop of their choice. Progressive strives to provide the best rates for the best drivers.

Visit to enter to win a vacation for 4 at Saratoga, Wyoming’s Brush Creek Ranch in Progressive’s Rig To Ranch contest. Registration is free and open to CDL holders until May 1st.
