We Build the World's Best Drivers and Fleets.

LinkeDrive, Inc was established in 2012 to help fleets large and small reach greater profitability in their operations, starting with their drivers.  


Through our partnership with the Behavioral Insights Team, LinkeDrive has developed a revolutionary, driver-centric approach to Driver and Fleet Management that makes engaging, coaching and motivating drivers easier and more effective than ever before. 


By combining cutting-edge cloud-based technology with Nobel-Prize winning behavioral science and business intelligence, our tools help fleets haul smarter, empower drivers to live and work at their full potential, and enable trucking companies to safely, sustainably and profitably keep the world moving forward.



Jeff Baer
 Founder and CEO

Human power and horsepower. Brains and brawn. When the two are linked, there’s virtually nothing that can’t be accomplished in the trucking industry. From his years in engineering engine controls for Ford and leading sales of lithium ion energy storage for A123 Systems, Jeff understood the capabilities of today’s commercial trucks. But he also saw the challenges the industry was facing in properly linking trucks with drivers to reach that potential.  Realizing that it would take an entirely new driver-centric approach to fleet management for fleets to achieve their sustainability, fuel efficiency, safety and driver retention goals, Jeff and his team created LinkeDrive. Today LinkeDrive’s revolutionary solutions link human power and horsepower by putting proven behavioral and data science in the driver’s seat.
