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.
