Our objective is to provide timely info, pictures, recommendations, and foresight prior to our Knockdown Crews and/or Washing Crews boarding. Our port captain will board the vessel to access hold conditions, assist crew in its knockdown process, and review voyage details in order to make recommendations to operators that may expedite the cleaning process after the current cargo is discharged. We work with Stevedore and vessel Officers in order to agree to a discharge rotation which will not impede the discharge process while still allowing the cleaning to start at the earliest possible time, minimizing delays post discharge where allowed. We will provide up to the minute reporting on the discharge/cleaning progress supported by photos, on site to make immediate adjustments and/or recommendations as needed.
