Accurate determination of consignment weight
Bureau Veritas supervise weight determination of liquids and dry cargoes in bulk, bagged, or packaged goods in compliance to meet your contractual requirements for weight and quantity, enhancing the level of risk mitigation. Our methods - consistent throughout the Bureau Veritas network - are based on internationally recognized standards and trade rules, such as GAFTA, FOSFA, ISO and extend to tally counts and check weighing on bagged goods.
Bureau Veritas performs draft surveys on vessels to determine accurate weight measurement during and after vessel loading.
Intermediate surveys can also be performed during loading into different holds, which enables our surveyors to determine the weight of individual cargo as it is loaded or unloaded.
Where material is discharged into barges or sent along inland waterways, barge gauging surveys are conducted to verify origin and vessel discharge draft survey weights.
Similarly, where material is moved in trucks, or rail wagons, weight is determined by a number of methods, including weighbridge and volumetric surveys.
