Loading & Discharge Supervision & Inspection

There are a number of risks associated with the shipment of grains, including loss of material through poor handling and quality variations from contamination or transport damage. Such events can result in significant partial or total financial loss for the commercial parties involved. 


Operating within the world’s major ports, growing regions, production, extraction and refining sites, we aim to minimize commercial risk by quickly and accurately determining the condition, quality and properties of goods transported, loaded or discharged.
