Why Loss Control?
Used as a cost savings tool it encompasses the planned and controlled reduction in cargo losses caused by various factors associated with the movement of crude and oil products.
There are four reasons why
a company hires a loss control representative:
Ascertain the load/discharge quantities
Petroleum liquid cargoes are of high value and it is imperative that ship/shore figures are reconciled.
As your loss control representative we are there to make sure your interests are protected. We lead the investigation into reconciling or explaining any discrepancies.
Ascertain the quality of the cargo.
Sampling is a very delicate operation. We are there to ensure that the proper procedures are accurately followed by the independent inspector.
Onboard the vessel we verify that the cargo containment meets the specs of the charter party to ensure that there is no cargo contamination.
Ashore we verify that the cargo is directed into a suitable shore tank and if co-mingled with a product already in the tank, that the product in the tank is within specifications.
Reporting – creating a paper trail.
We document every detail of the operation for your records to ensure that any challenge or claim that arises is easily defended.
