ITS offers a full range of commercial survey, inspection, sampling and testing services with supporting Certificates and other relevant documentation, including, but not limited to the following;
- DRAFT SURVEYS:
Surveys to determine the quantity of a bulk cargo loaded/discharged by reading the vessel’s drafts, measuring the ballast water, fuel & diesel oil and other liquids on board, and calculating the final quantity by using the vessel’s approved dead-weight scales and tank tables, etc.
- PRE-SHIPMENT SURVEYS:
Surveys of break-bulk cargo, especially newsprint, wood-pulp and project cargoes to ensure that bill of lading and/or mate’s receipts accurately note the apparent condition of cargo when it is loaded, and to comment on the water tightness, condition and ventilation of the vessel’s holds.
- CARGO PRE-LOADING SURVEYS:
To measure and calculate the cargo’s cubic feet/meter for freight payment/stowage purposes, and/or verify its condition by recording all visible damage before shipment and/or at the warehouse/dock for insurance purposes, carriers and/or freight forwarders.
- HATCH SEALING:
To ensure that no contamination and/or loss of cargo occur during passage or stopover in other Ports prior to final destination.
