We provide surveys for interested parties (shippers, consignees, forwarders, brokers, cargo insurers and carriers) to determine condition, suitability, stowage, securing and outturn condition of break-bulk cargoes, bulk cargoes, in storage and other high value cargoes carried by air, land and sea.

Our expertise includes but is not limited to the following cargoes:
• The Metals Family.
• Automobile / Motor Vehicles.
• Wheeled & Heavy Units.
• General Consumer Goods.

Our cargo surveys include:


Investigate the nature and extent of the loss or damage and establish the possible cause(s)


Report on the condition or particular aspects of a cargo or the condition of the ship or both, prior to the cargo being loaded.


Inspection of vessels holds and hatch covers, ascertain cargo condition at last point of rest noting storage, stowage, packing and marking, cargo handling from last point of rest to alongside the vessel, during loading operations take note of loading method, cargo handling on board, stowage, lashing and securing of cargo.


Ascertain cargo condition on board the vessel at hatch covers opening noting stowage and securing, during discharge operations take note of the cargo handling on board, discharge method, cargo condition alongside the vessel, cargo handling alongside the vessel, cargo handling from alongside the vessel to storage area, storage, stowage, packing, marking and cargo condition at last point of rest.


Establish the condition and any damages or cargo shifting that may have occurred during the voyage to break-bulk cargo, particularly steel, upon vessels arrival at the discharge port. This survey often requires Silver Nitrate testing for chloride residues, to establish a possible salt water contamination. The survey can be carried out during discharge operations to ascertain if any damages have occurred either before, after or during discharge. Ascertain the safe and appropriate storage of the cargo.


Determine the quantity of both, dry and liquid bulk cargoes loaded or discharged by:
• Draft Survey: determine the quantity of a bulk cargo loaded or discharged by reading the vessels drafts, measuring the ballast water, fuel and diesel oil and other liquids on board, and calculating the final quantity by using the vessels approved dead-weight scales and tank tables, etc.
• Tallying.
• Tank Measurement.
