Samsara Inc. announced that the Samsara Connected Operations Cloud was selected by Werner Enterprises, a transportation and logistics company. Werner leverages Samsara to improve the safety and experience of drivers across its fleet and reduce costs.
With more than 8,500 trucks, 27,000 trailers, and 14,000 associates, safety on and off the road is a top priority for Werner.

How Does Samsara Help?
Samsara AI Dash Cams enable several real-time updates, including:
- Incident detection.
- In-cab preventive coaching.
- Coaching workflows.
- Worker safety scores.
Alerts provide Werner’s drivers with audio warnings when high-risk behaviors like speeding, rolling stops, and harsh braking are detected. As a result of Samsara adoption, Werner saw positive safety outcomes and found more opportunities to recognize drivers for good behavior and attentiveness on the road.
“Werner is intentional and focused on ensuring the safety of our own drivers and the motoring public,” said Daragh Mahon, EVP & CIO of Werner Enterprises. “To innovate in the transportation and logistics industry, you need to work with like-minded technology leaders. Samsara’s pace of innovation is what we were looking for and we are excited for the continued growth with them in our digital transformation journey.”
Werner has a “Cloud First, Cloud Now” strategy and is well on its way to being the first major truckload carrier in North America to move its entire technology stack and operations to the Cloud. Samsara’s open ecosystem makes it possible for Werner to collect, analyze, and act on data from Samsara’s Connected Operations Cloud in its proprietary fleet management platform. With more than 4.6 trillion data points processed annually, Samsara is set to help large transportation and logistics companies increase their operations’ safety, efficiency, and sustainability.
“Samsara’s potential to improve the lives of millions of people who power our economy is what keeps us innovating,” said Stephen Franchetti, CIO of Samsara. “Real-time data is the foundation of creating a better driver experience and a more resilient supply chain. Werner demonstrates what’s possible when you lean into innovation and it’s an exciting time to be a part of their journey.”
Earlier this year, Samsara named its 200th partner and integrated with General Motors vehicles. In addition, Samsara’s integration with Free2move is available for fleet customers in the U.S. with properly equipped and enabled 2018-MY or newer Stellantis vehicles, including Ram, Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep.
