Build the operating system for global trade

Flexport is building the first modern logistics platform to make global trade easier for everyone. We are solving complex problems on a global scale, and disrupting a multi-trillion dollar industry that has remained stubbornly unchanged

Insurance Engineering

While developments in technology have enabled information to flow faster, cargo is still loaded into containers that are transported on trucks, loaded onto boats, sailing across the oceans. Freight insurance is the protection that covers the cargo in case of damage or loss. We believe cargo insurance doesn’t need to be clunky. It should be a fast, fluid, digitally-driven process that is easy to tailor for cost effectiveness.

The Insurance engineering team is a new team and it is focused on building a new insurance platform to handle all aspects of the customer journey and back-office business processes. Our insurance business has grown from per-shipment insurance to annual policies and in the coming time we will be launching more insurance products to enable our ambitious growth goals.
