Matthew Grant is joined by Johnny McCord, Founder and CEO of Loadsure. Topics they discuss include the benefits of an instant embedded solution to offer insurance, why traditional insurance is unable to offer flexible products and the importance of a strong company culture in attracting the right talent.

  • How the use of data and analytics can overcome shortcomings such as the difficulty for traditional freight insurance, to provide the necessary cover for products such as alcohol, foods, frozen produce and fireworks.
  • Loadsure’s experience with the Lloyd’s Lab and how to make remote working a benefit for the business.
  • The power and efficiency that comes from using existing categories and industry codes to gain a better understanding of the location and movement of commodities being insured.
