Prevention is better than cure, forewarned is forearmed etc are all adages to remind us that it is wiser to take reasonable early precaution than suffer the consequences of a foreseeable risk.
As correspondents we advise clients of any new observations or local trends that can lead to be preventable risks. As surveyors we regularly assist Owners and their Clubs with both cargo loss prevention surveys and ship vetting.
Preloading and loading surveys, drafts surveys, bunker surveys, ullaging, tally are all means to assist owners and clubs with defending possible claims and we have carried thousands such surveys over the years.
Our most extensive experience is with those cargoes traditionally traded in our areas inclusive of oil, steel, grains, scrap, ores and concentrates, fertilizers, project cargo – to name a few.
