CTT Shipping works closely with clients to prepare for projects and
events when our technical expertise is required. We prepare
specifications ahead of such undertaking, provide cost assessments, and
provide on-site attendance during the physical phase. We follow
up to evaluate performance and ensure full crew familiarity.
Pre-purchase and condition inspections and Surveys
We conduct in-depth physical inspections of vessels, records and
documents in order to assist our clients in assessing vessel condition
and maintenance positioning. In other cases we assist in preparing
vessel conditions for marketing. We also perform on-hire and off-hire
surveys as well as general condition surveys for owners, their lenders
and insurance underwriters.
Port State Control Inspections
In advance of trades to territories with particularly strict port state
controls, we have offered our vast expertise to diminish PSC
deficiencies and prevent detentions. No vessel we have prepared
has been detained in our history at any port, including the strictest
EU and US ports. Where CTT Shipping is contracted after a vessel has
been detained, we quickly move and secure an expeditious release and
minimize our clients’ financial exposure.
Insurance Claims and General Average
In cases where cargo interests are exposed to cargo value losses
after vessels have become incapacitated, we have been called upon to
arrange global solutions that consider all interests in the voyage,
including ship owners, charterers, underwriters and other interested
parties. Specific to the individual client, we offer the best
solution that will enhance our client’s financial position and limit
legal exposure in a mutually agreeable way to all involved parties.
Disputes and Claims
When disputes arise, we have been called to assist clients facing large
financial exposure. Through thorough review of relevant documents
we can provide our opinion on the merits of prospective claims and
execute negotiations on behalf of our clients. Our intervention
has assisted clients in obtaining favorable settlements, often without
requiring costly legal or arbitration proceedings. In cases where
arbitration has been deemed necessary, we have successfully prepared
for arbitration in such diverse venues as London, New York, Paris,
Piraeus and New Delhi.
CTT Shipping has directed the implementation of ISM and ISPS codes and
certification on behalf of vessel operators with minimal expenditures
and audits. Similarly, we have assisted non-operators receive ISO
certification to offer quality assurances to their clients.
