Concordia Sea Service BV finds the best route for hulls and project cargo.
In the transportation of hulls and project cargo we take the following steps:
Orientation: During an orientating meeting the first drafts are made and the best possible way of transportation is determined. This can be by means of pontoons, submergible seagoing ships (only if the cargo cannot be lifted by a derrick barge), heavy cargo ships with or without deck cranes.
Agreement; Concordia Sea Service BV accepts the commission for door-to-door transport of the cargo. After negotiations a contract will be signed.
Calculation; Concordia Sea Service BV calculates the cargo weight and determines the consequent hauling capacity and the materials needed to secure the cargo on board the ship. For the verification and recording of the calculations Concordia Sea Service BV only works with well-known partners. We also set-up a load- and transportation manual.
Loading; Concordia Sea Service BV has a worldwide network of agents, loading docks and shipyards at its disposal for a swift and safe loading. After the ship has been loaded we make sure all the needed straps are secured.
Safety; Concordia Sea Service BV works together with insurance companies and in accordance with their regulations. Cargo and materials used for securing cargo are inspected not only by our own inspectors but also by inspectors from our insurance companies. An official certificate of approval is issued when the ship departs.
Transport; During transport cargo will be inspected on a daily bases and the ship itself can be tracked through a satellite connection. Weather forecasts are closely followed and if necessary the route will be altered.
Arrival; The manner for unloading the cargo will be determined by the circumstances at the scene. After unloading the ship all sea fastenings will be removed and where necessary conservation will be restored.
