During the transportation of cargoes by sea, road or air freight, damage may be suffered as a result of many causes which can include deficient cargo handling during loading, discharging or trans-shipment operations, movement or shifting during shipment or as a consequence of an external event which may occur at any time between dispatch and delivery.
Damages to cargo can take the form of minor or superficial defects, or serious deficiencies which can result in the product being completely unsuitable for its intended purpose.
TCB Singapore can arrange a survey of damaged cargo, which when competently conducted, will strive to uncover the root cause of the damage, and investigate the possibilities for repair or recovery in order that the cargo may be accepted suitable for use without detriment.
Cargo condition surveys may be carried out at any stage, prior or post shipment, for verification, precautionary or insurance purposes, or to provide an early indication of potential defects which may lead to project delay if undetected.
TCB Singapore can carry out:
- Damage surveys on all cargo types
- Condition surveys of all cargo types
- Supervision at loading, discharging or transfer operations
- Inspection and verification of cargo securing arrangements
- Survey of freight containers and their cargoes
