It has become increasingly common for, particularly, P&I Claim Handlers to seek remote management of potential claim mitigation, in order to reduce overall travel costs.
APC specialise in such remote management of incidents, using local P&I Correspondents & inspection companies. We will liaise directly with all personnel on the scene and give advice on the gathering of the necessary evidence (inspection, document retrieval, sampling & subsequent local analysis, if deemed reliable), in order to protect the Client’s interest. If considered necessary, we will arrange for samples to be sent to the UK, for safe storage & subsequent joint analysis.
Losses and contaminations of crude oils, products, veg oils, petrochemicals, LPG, LNG & chemical gases will be investigated, and an opinion given as to the most likely causes. This initial opinion will be given entirely impartially, as we believe the Client should be in possession of all facts, whether good or bad, before proceeding to the next stage. If required, APC will produce an Expert Report, suitable for litigation purposes.
