Reports of discharge/loading can give pertinent details on stowage, handling, and conditions
of cargoes. Our inspection personnel can give real time updates before and during the discharge or loading of a vessel. Essentially
they can be your eyes, relaying important independent information, so that informed decisions can be made.
Draft surveys of barges, which give approximate tonnage's based on water displacement,
are routinely used in the Gulf of Mexico for settlement weights. Scale weights are the norm in the northern ports.
Verification of truck or rail scale weights is called checkweighing. Draft surveys and Checkweighing
are available at most of our locations.
