Frequently asked questions
Tally is a far cry from survey report due to deficiency of detailed examination of damaged cargo. This means common state of cargo. That’s why expenses for tallyman are not as high as for survey. This service is carried out on a continuing basis (during loading/ unloading several shiploads or container loads).
Tallyman service includes everyday report provision, filling in tally sheets and issuing final survey report, which is the main document proving the cargo quantity. Skilled tallyman services will allow you to:
- Get rigorous view about quality and quantity of cargo at the reloading moment.
- Get current information about quality and state of cargo during transportation.
Significant part of tallyman service is inspection during loading/ unloading of commodity cargo. Particularity of commodity cargo shiftment is the potential danger of pilferage. Pilferage can happen not only during loading/ unloading (our inspectors keep an eye out of it) but also during transportation.
To specify the way of pilferage is the purpose of surveyor, but the first information must be collected by the tallyman (during the unloading). That’s why our company has a system of getting the information which allows to detect method of pilferage.
Besides pilferage there is one more problem – underweight reasons of which can be different. However to prove the underweight is possible only by expert and ocular survey report where the results of scaling and its precision are displayed.
