Break Bulk & Out of Gauge Survey


We attend as an independent party to determine the cargo condition on arrival at the port of loading or discharge. We document the loading / discharge process and produce a true and accurate chronological report, which details the condition of the cargo throughout.

We also offer shipping line and cargo terminal representation, whereby we devise lifting, stowage and securing plans with full responsibility and supervision of the cargo transfer operations.

The securing and adequate supporting of your specialist cargo is our utmost priority. We can ensure your cargo, be it a new yacht, helicopter or generator unit, is lifted (if required) by an appropriate method and with lifting gear of suitable Safe Working Load (SWL), supported correctly on the intended stowage and secured in line with the IMO Regulations for the Safe Stowage and Securing of Cargoes.

We regularly operate in many port and commercial environments across Europe and further afield. We have developed good working relationships with many European port authorities, which allow us to monitor schedules prior to cargo operations and arrange security clearance for access.
