We can rely on a large track record of operations to assist ship owners and insurers as well as to collect evidence for future loss assessment and litigation purpose.

During our 100 years of experience, we have seen casualties such as groundings, flooding or even capsizes, collisions, major shifts of cargo or collapses of a container stow. At other times, the cargo itself is the cause of the casualty. For instance, problems with spontaneous combustion of cargo, liquefaction of mineral ores or incidents related to incorrect declaration of cargo weights in containers. There has also been a stream of casualties where fires have started in container loads of hazardous cargoes, some producing major damage to ship and cargo or, even worse, causing injury or death to the crew.

We provide expert advice to ship owners, operators and underwriters in all such cases.

But as the lines between human agency and smart agent-like devices become increasingly blurred, there’s an emerging challenge in building trust and public acceptance.
