Our service

Condition survey
The basis for a successful transport begins with a suitable transport unit. To provide for this, our surveyors inspect containers, flatracks and rolltrailers for the general suitability for loading with the intended cargo incl. checking for possible pre-existing damages, signs of wear and other defects to exclude any negative impact on the transport.
When transporting hazardous goods, compliance with international regulations and standards, such as those prescribed by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods (IMDG) Code or the ADR Directive, for proper labeling, stowage and handling is essential for the safety of the cargo as well as the environment. Our dedicated dangerous goods surveyors assist with assistance and guidance for adherence to rules and regulations or when selecting suitable packaging as well as with inspections on site (e.g. prior to shipping).
The precise identification of damages during the condition survey is crucial for rapid claims settlement. This applies to external damages to containers and flatracks/rolltrailers as well as to any damages to the packaging or the goods themselves. A detailed damage documentation not only provides for efficient claim settlements, but also contributes to the continuous improvement of safety standards.
Choosing the right packaging is another key aspect that should be considered in detail in advance. Proper packaging advice not only takes into account the type of goods to be transported, but also the specific requirements of the means of transportation, not only protecting against transport damages, but also contributing to the safety of transport personnel and third parties.
Proper cargo stowage and securing is crucial to prevent any transport damages. Our surveyors ensure the cargo being properly stowed/secured in accordance with international regulations and recommendations (CTU Code), significantly minimizing the risk of transport damages or accidents.
