A WATCHFUL EYE

LOADING AND UNLOADING CONTROL

Loading, discharging and transhipment with professional supervision

Continuous supervision during loading, discharging and transshipment of inland navigation vessels, coasters and sea-going vessels. During transshipment, our inspectors are present at every stage of the operational process for up-to-date monitoring of temperature, quality and condition of (dry) bulk goods. If the cargo does not meet the standard you specified, we will inform you in time so that you can take action against your contracting party/parties. Weight determination:

  • Application of the correct loading, discharge and/or transshipment procedures
  • Weight control by checking the scales used for loading or unloading
  • Checking scales for calibration
  • Checking the scales where possible
  • By means of calibration inland vessels and/or draft survey sea vessels/coasters

SAMPLING AND SAMPLE DISPATCH

From sampling in the field to laboratory samples

We sample grains, oilseeds, animal feed, derived products and other agricultural raw materials. The samples are collected according to your specific and international requirements, varying per type of product. From field sampling to laboratory samples. Thanks to our network in the field of laboratory analysis, we can assist you in selecting an accredited laboratory. We ensure that samples are taken to various laboratories within the required time frame in order to obtain representative and accurate results.

  • Contractual and/or private sampling and sealing of samples in accordance with the various contracts (including FOSFA/GAFTA/VERNOF/FCC)
  • Storage facilities: your contractual and/or open samples are stored per batch for the required storage period in our sample room and subsequently destroyed.
  • Dispatch of your contractual samples within the stipulated period to the laboratory of your choice with full traceability and the courier’s basic information.

AUDIT SOLUTIONS AND STOCK REVIEWS

We ensure that your cargo is loaded and shipped according to your specifications

Monitoring of stored goods is important during the storage period. We offer continuous monitoring or periodic inspection to keep track of movements and the condition of your goods.

  •  Visual observation of the condition of the cargo and temperature recording(s). Depending on the period in which storage takes place and the method of storage, the product may start to fester. We can help prevent this by continuously monitoring stocks, whether or not by means of movable temperature probes (in the cargo) in the case of warehouses.
  • In the case of floating storage, we offer (weekly) monitoring where our inspectors visually check the cargo in combination with temperature probes.

DAMAGE INVESTIGATIONS

RVJ-CI works closely together with well recognized surveyors

Our damage investigation services assist in determining the condition of your cargo and the possible cause of the damage, thus helping to limit the possible financial losses caused by the damage.

Postponement of RVJ at the Sea

How wonderful. We can meet each other again. We had planned our first major event for 15 September. Unfortunately, two other parties who also focus on the co-insurance market had the same idea. For this reason and in order not to overcrowd the agendas, we have decided to postpone our event – RVJ aan Zee...
