Queensland Ship Surveyors are experienced providers of cargo lashing,
suitability for a tow, dead ship tow, on-hire and off-hire barge and related
surveys to clients in all ports in Australia and the Oceania region. We can help our clients to reduce the incidences of personal injury or
death, negative environmental impacts and property damage caused by incorrect lashing and securing cargo and/or towing arrangements.
Cargo lashing refers to the securing of cargo for transportation at sea. Our surveys and calculations prevent shifting of the cargo when at sea either on a costal voyage or a blue water deep sea voyage, regardless of the length of the voyage. If you have cargo that is secured incorrectly on a vessel, you are taking some serious risks when the voyage begins.
For instance, you could end up in a situation where some of your cargo breaks free and ends
up overboard because it was not adequately secured. The shipment is a monetary
loss if you’re losing it at sea and you’re also running the risk of your crew
members being hurt or killed if the cargo breaks free.
These are issues that we can prevent. Our surveys will assess
your cargo lashing and tow out requirements. We will conduct all the necessary work
to ensure that you are compliant with recognised maritime industry tow out and cargo lashing practice.
