01Cargo InspectionsCargo Inspections

As cargo surveyors we act on site in your interests when dealing with all the companies involved with handling. We keep you well informed at all times thus enabling you to maintain a consistent surveillance and supervision of your flow of goods.

Cargo inspection as we understand it and carry it out is no longer defined as merely monotonous counting on the gangway; instead it involves specialised and qualified inspections which are based on our three-pillar principle:



Target-performance comparison of cargo and booking lists with the cargo, sworn cargo measurement, clarification of differences between those involved with the cargo.



Inspection of the number of pieces and physical inspection during loading and unloading. Allocation of tasks to shifts including all the times and important details.



Issuing all necessary documents such as manifests, stowage plans, hatch lists, excess length lists, damage lists, photo reports etc.

Loading & Unloading

  • Project cargo
    • such as plant material, general cargo
  • Ro-ro cargo
    • such as cars, trucks, high & heavy
  • Steel products
    • such as pipes, plates, slabs, profiles, coils
  • Forest products
    • such as lumber, trunk wood, MDF plates, paper

02Cargo MeasurementsCargo Measurements

As sworn cargo measurers we ascertain the actual dimensions of your goods or freight of all kinds and sizes.
This neutral and approved ascertainment of ship and cargo dimensions serves:

  • as a neutral basis for the assessment of the ocean freight
  • as a support for port captains und supercargos charged with the cargo planning
  • to avoid unnecessary, cost-intensive waiting periods for the ship and cargo due to unforeseen variations in dimensions
