Uber Freight is partnering with the insurance software company Redkik as part of a strategic collaboration to revolutionize per-load cargo insurance, the companies announced Aug. 17.

Redkik will have its InsurTech software integrated into Uber Freight’s Shipper Platform. The integration aims to provide instant access to competitively priced less-than-truckload cargo insurance. The insurance coverage is available at the point of booking a shipment for transport.

“Our mission is to enhance our customers’ supply chain strategy and equip them with the necessary tools and service to deliver — cargo insurance is no exception,” said Michael Bailey, product manager at Uber Freight. “By integrating Redkik’s innovative InsurTech solution directly onto our Shipper Platform, we’re able to streamline the process for our shippers and ensure they have the coverage they need 24/7.”

Redkik has been focused on streamlining and enhancing insurance within the logistics and transportation sectors. Its proprietary technology produces instantaneous quotes by leveraging artificial intelligence and machine learning. The collaboration will allow that technology to be paired with a notably large digital freight marketplace and managed transportation network.

“We are proud to join forces with the forward-thinking team at Uber Freight,” said Redkik CEO Chris Kalinski. “Together, we are bringing substantial time and cost savings to the Uber Freight network, and reinforcing our commitment to delivering progressive, intelligent insurance solutions.” — Transport Topics
