Container losses come in all shapes and sizes, such as losses involving fire damage or materials falling overboard. We have extensive experience managing container losses across the globe and our dedicated team will establish the extent and cause of the damages. We also provide project cargo and warranty services, which include assessing the suitability of the cargo, vessel and handling gear at the start of an operation. We bring together our team’s global expertise to ensure the highest standards of pre-risk loss control.
