Loadsure integrates WeatherOptics data into risk calculations

Insurtech MGA Loadsure has partnered with WeatherOptics to bring weather intelligence into its risk calculations.

WeatherOptics translates weather data into actionable insights for logistics companies, providing predictive intelligence as a risk score or delay time that allow businesses to easily understand how upcoming weather will affect their operations. These insights help predict and mitigate such uncertainties as trucking delays, warehouse disruptions and weather-related driver risk.

Loadsure CEO and founder Johnny McCord said: “Loadsure always strives to be at the cutting edge of freight insurance technology and partnering with WeatherOptics enables us to expand into a new field of protection and coverage, helping businesses to better understand and insure weather-related disruptions like delays of critical shipments, temperature breaches for sensitive freight and warehouse disruptions. Our integration with WeatherOptics will further enhance our capacity for business-saving protection for SMEs - we look forward to collaborating.”

WeatherOptics co-founder and CEO, Scott Pecoriello, added: “WeatherOptics insights are designed to predict potential risks to supply chain and logistics operations by combining weather modelling with industry-specific data points like geospatial variables, telematics data and power outage reports. This allows us to deliver granular insights on exactly how actual business operations will be affected by upcoming storms. We’re excited to partner with Loadsure to bring these insights to more shippers, carriers and brokers.”
