iShield Vessel Vetting

End to End solution for Vessel Vetting

Vessel Vetting is a risk assessment process carried out by charterers and terminal operators in order to avoid making use of deficient ships or barges when goods are being transported by sea or by inland waterways. Vessel vetting ensures organizations do not run the risk of using substandard vessels that can lead to incurring of major costs incurred due to casualties (minor or severe) - human, environmental or commercial, delays due to in-port inspections and regulatory non-compliance.

Integrated solution

Ship vetting involves sourcing data on ships and evaluating the potential risks such as the ship's structural integrity, competence of owners, managers and crew, past casualties and incidents. As a chartering company, shipping company or a terminal depot, if you use third-party vessels or barges it is essential to ensure management of all safety, quality and environmental risks adequately in addition to ensuring compliance with stringent legislation.
