For global charterers of dry-bulk vessels it is critical to ensure that each candidate vessel is subjected to a thorough risk assessment and vetting inspection to determine its relative safety for a particular voyage.
A physical assessment of a vessel prior to undertaking a particular voyage is crucial to ensure that all critical areas of the vessel, which are designed to preserve the cargo carried, are in good condition so as to reduce the risk of cargo claims resulting from damaged cargo, or reduce the risk of voyages not being completed in line with the terms of the charter party.
