Parsyl was founded in 2017 with the goal of building a world where everyone, everywhere can trust the quality of goods they rely on, from the foods they eat to the medicines they need. We’ve developed a fully integrated, connected insurance solution for essential supply chains that uses data and technology to better understand the quality of refrigerated cargo, reduces waste and costs, and provides better insurance coverage. We’re building the data-driven cargo insurer of the future and ending the days of ship and pray.
Parsyl’s team brings a unique combination of experience in cargo insurance and logistics, big data analytics and global health.
