Upon arrival in port there are a number of issues for a vessel to address, in particular, if the vessel is a first time visitor to the port.
Thylacine International provides support for the ship owner, charterer, Master, shipper and receivers, through our experienced representatives we are in a position to liaise with all parties to facilitate a successful outcome.
By attending onboard we are able to act as a conduit between the Master and shore facilities including petroleum berths, general cargo or container terminals.
Our established relationship with the terminal operator & stevedores significantly reduces communication issues resulting in a more efficient cargo operation and vessel turnaround time.
An important part of Port Captaincy & superintendents attendance onboard is to ensure agreeance between the vessel and stevedores particularly in relation to comprehension and compliance with the stowage plans and cargo securing, in addition liaison with the Chief Officer to ensure the cargo is stowed to meet the vessels stability criteria.
