Why are Cargo Surveys Important?

With containerized shipping and intermodal transportation, cargoes are no longer confined to shipping in harbours. Therefore, cargoes and containers need to meet all international regulatory requirements for safety. The Viswa Group’s Cargo Surveys can help customers prevent cargo shortages, cargo contamination, and demurrage claims to ensure all cargoes and containers remain compliant with global industry standards and regulations.

The Value of Cargo Surveys

There’s more to container and cargo inspection than just counting sides and ends. The Viswa Group’s dedicated team of surveyors will conduct detailed investigations to ensure that cargo is properly packed and determine the root cause of damage, if any.

Cargo Surveys can help customers:

  • Prevent cargo and container damage.
  • Maintain compliance with IMO regulations.
  • Mitigate risk and potential losses.
  • Determine if a damaged good or container can be salvaged. If
    yes, start the necessary arrangements for salvage.
