OWNERS WANT TO BE ON TOP
OF DEMURRAGE CLAIMS

It’s not unusual that the short time bars and detailed lists of documentation lead to failed claims, simply because documents are not compiled exactly as per specifications.

Collecting, structuring and providing a secure environment for the transfer and storage of confidential documents is the core of our Laytime-Desk service.

COLLECTING THE NECESSARY DOCUMENTS
IS A BASIC, YET ESSENTIAL TASK

Laytime and demurrage continues to be a constant source of disagreement. Misinterpretation of charter-party clauses and the Laytime calculation itself can be a costly affair. It’s all in the details of the – usually – unstructured documents.

THIS IS WHAT WE DO:

Upon agreement, we cross-reference documents with the charter party and Recap to confirm requirements. All documents are then stored in our secure industry-grade LT-Vault.

With the documents at hand, we sort and check the clauses and run the Laytime calculation, giving you a detailed logical breakdown.

When you have approved the calculation, we follow up with counterparties and ensure supporting documents are included. This is done within the agreed and required time line.

If you need, we’ll have our professional and experienced recovery team manage funds recovery.
