Recognized for its online commercial trucking insurance platform and Driver Safety Program, Cover Whale will use the funding to support the next phase of profitable growth.

Cover Whale Insurance Solutions, a company specializing in connected insurance for commercial vehicles, recently announced funding of $27.5 million in debt and equity from investment funds managed by Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital. The funding round, which also had existing debt investors convert into the Series A preferred, will support Cover Whale's continued growth and accelerate its progress toward transforming trucking insurance and improving safety on America's roads.

The funding will provide a strong balance sheet supporting Cover Whale's growing business. Cover Whale is actively investing in its technology and operating platform to further improve speed to quote and service quality.
