Lineage Partners with Cold Chain Cargo Insurer Parsyl to Eliminate Waste from Food Supply Chains
Strategic partnership introduces a new insurance program that will leverage data to enable improved cargo insurance solutions for Lineage customers in the United States
January 11, 2023
January 11, 2023 - Denver, CO – Parsyl Inc, a data-powered insurer for essential supply chains, today announced a strategic partnership with Lineage, the world’s largest and most innovative temperature-controlled industrial REIT and logistics solutions provider. The partnership will tap into Lineage’s best-in-class, data-driven logistics capabilities to bring more competitive cargo insurance solutions to Lineage customers in the food and beverage space.
Based on typical insurance premiums, Lineage customers are estimated to spend more than $500 million a year on cargo insurance. Many are overpaying because traditional insurers have limited data on what they’re insuring and pricing can be opaque. Parsyl uses data from multiple sources to create tailored coverage based on each customer's unique risk profile which enables more competitive pricing, better coverage and more efficient claims service.
“Lineage is continuously committed to innovation and challenging the boundaries of what is possible to achieve for our customers, and that commitment now includes their insurance needs. We are proud to facilitate a technology-driven insurance solution via Parsyl in support of driving customer value and fortifying a stronger food supply chain,” said Sudarsan Thattai, Lineage’s CIO and Chief Transformation Officer.
“Parsyl and Lineage share a vision to create a more sustainable and efficient supply chain. Through this partnership, Lineage customers can benefit from more comprehensive and competitive insurance coverage thanks to the strong logistics capabilities provided by Lineage,” said Ben Hubbard, CEO of Parsyl.
Any Lineage client who moves perishable goods through Lineage facilities or with Lineage transportation is eligible for this insurance program with Parsyl. Parsyl reserves the right to determine final eligibility and pricing. To find out more, customers can request a quote from Parsyl via their insurance broker or visit www.parsyl.com/lineage.
