Verifying coverage quickly, even for cargo exclusions.
MegaCorp was already doing everything it could to stay compliant with rapid changes in the industry – from rates to insurance requirements, truck capacity, fuel prices and even the cost of the goods themselves.
In this instance, conventional freight insurance methods simply weren’t proving quick enough. MegaCorp’s policy is to not load the trucks until insurance coverage was verified, and this was leading to considerable delays, according to MegaCorp’s standards. We asked Terri Martin – Carrier Authorization Manager – about the biggest cargo insurance obstacles MegaCorp was facing.
“At times we need to check on cargo exclusions, to ensure our carrier partners can haul a specific commodity. This can take hours – sometimes days – waiting on an agent or an underwriter to confirm.”
On top of this, MegaCorp was hauling a lot of refrigerated goods, like fresh foods and other temperature sensitive cargo. The cost of goods like these had risen, so their FTLs were rising in value too, but the carriers they used didn’t increase their cargo limits to account for this. It became clear they needed to find a better option and fast; one that would do their carrier partners, customers and employees justice.
That’s when they heard about Loadsure from a colleague in the industry. At last – this was a flexible solution that MegaCorp could rely on for consistently affordable freight coverage.
Thanks to its AI-powered engine, the Loadsure platform can issue accurately-priced policies in less than a minute. This super-fast service meant that MegaCorp could eliminate delays caused by the wait for cover to be verified, meaning shipments were able to be loaded on time.
For MegaCorp, switching to Loadsure has been a game changer. Not only does sourcing freight insurance through Loadsure save the company money, it also allows them to ship a wider range of goods – including high value loads – so their clients are better served too.
More specifically, the Loadsure product MegaCorp has consistently used is Thames™, our dynamic on-demand cargo insurance. With this product, the firm has been able to cover the refrigerated shipments they were previously struggling to insure, as well as their most valuable machinery shipments too.
Ultimately, the biggest draw for MegaCorp was the ease of the platform itself. When asked about her experience with it, Terri said “the web portal is simple, user friendly, and you can get coverage at the drop of a dime.”
