Areas of Expertise

Over the years, we’ve built up a team of dedicated and experienced professionals in the fields of marine survey and cargo inspection, with the main categories as follows:


Cargo Inspections


  • Weighing, sampling, and sample preparation for nonferrous metals, ores and concentrates
  • Loading and discharging supervision for general, dry bulk, liquid cargoes
  • Pre-shipment Inspection (PSI) against drawing and contractual specifications
