    Those are just a few of the factors that can impact the quantity and quality of your vessel’s cargo. Additional variables we take into consideration when measuring any fluctuations in cargo include:

    • The vessel’s design, including void spaces in the structure of the ship
    • Sediment and water collected during the voyage
    • Slops, clingage and crude oil washing
    • Transit gains due to accidental commingling of product
    • Transit losses due to vapor losses, leaks, cargo burned as fuel or other mid-voyage activities

    A non-negotiable component in any successful voyage is the documentation reflecting what happened and why. We provide you with a highly detailed paper trail recording facts, measurements. Upshot: you’ll understand, and be able to explain, what took place onboard your vessel.
