On board vessels, we store your cargo on a pre-prepared bed containing multiple flat racks, providing a safe working environment for stevedores and ensuring compliance with IMO CSS Code Annex 13 requirements.

Our team also focuses on loss and claim prevention for very large and/or heavy cargo, ensuring safe and smooth delivery.
