Claims and Penalties

In order to fully protect your interest, we advise the following to avoid claims and penalties.

Pakistan Customs give a tolerance of (+/-) 0.25 per cent between B/L and arrived ullage report quantities. Therefore, we strongly advise you to appoint reliable surveyors at load port.
The Master should monitor loading surveyor calculation closely and lodge N.O.P.
If there is any shortage he needs to involve P&I Club.
We have very reputable / experienced surveyors who we will appoint here in Karachi / Port Qasim.

We recommend not to declare your Arr / Ullage report or cargo quantity to customs on arrival without consulting our appointed surveyor to safeguard your interest.

Please note that according to customs regulations all cargo is discharged into customs bonded tanks and delivery of cargo to consignee is effected against delivery order issued from agents / us.
This is issued to consignee only after presentation of Original Bill of Lading or Bank Guarantee. Therefore consignees do not normally present OBL prior commencement of discharging.

Please note that in order to reduce risk of customs / commercial claims due shortage of cargo discharge and resultant delays to the vessel's berth stay, its normal practice to appoint shore squeezing gang. In our view, the ship's crew is usually unable to perform due to the limited manpower and excessive heat in tanks.
