We conduct many types of audit, inspection and certification to promote safety and operational efficiency. To these we bring all insights gained from our incident investigations, translating that experience into a valuable contribution to loss prevention. Through our global network of 500+ surveyors, we can arrange audits and inspections at short notice in all major ports.
The expertise of our specialist surveyors is backed by efficient, quality-assured back office processes. These robust systems are what allow us to handle several thousand surveys and reports each year without compromising on quality, consistency or expertise. Our reports all undergo a rigorous review process and communicate clearly, decisively with actionable advice. We also capture your reporting preferences to deliver reports that meet your particular needs.
Our specialist surveyors are assisted by a range of software innovations that enable comprehensive reporting within shorter timeframes. One of these innovations is MATE, a cloud-based application which not only translates inspection results into digestible scoring overviews, but also provides our clients real time access to reporting and statistics.
