About Us;

We’re a human-centric insurtech startup, and we’re leveraging our proprietary smart technology to disrupt the global cargo and freight insurance market.

Founded in November 2018, we’re taking direct aim at this massive global underinsurance crisis. Committed to agile value delivery, solid engineering principles, and continuous improvement, we’re delivering the instant, dynamic, one-click transactional insurance businesses need through AI and automation.

In short, we’re reinventing how the transportation and supply chain industries manage and mitigate risks—protecting the future growth of businesses and the people who rely on them.

As a well-funded and sustainable company with prestigious VC investors, we’re scaling to address broad risk exposure in the just-in-time supply chain and become the next insurtech unicorn.

The way we see it, the opportunities to innovate and create meaningful change are great. How so?

Today, 60-90% of cargo in transit is under or uninsured, creating unsustainable losses for some. The reason: Traditional insurance simply can’t work as fast as the supply chain moves.

Would you like to help drive the digital evolution of the 300-year-old global transportation insurance industry?

Drop us a line. This isn’t just another job, not any other office space. With Loadsure, you’ll have direct access to a strong, supportive, and highly-collaborative community that listens and grows with you. You’ll also enjoy the flexibility of remote working, commensurate pay, equity, and benefits.

Discover your rewarding career.
