Operational Excellence through Leadership and Compliance

Bringing a vessel into certification can be very costly if done so without being armed with the proper information. All aspects of the vessel and its intended operations must be examined, and all aspects must be considered including if the vessel is eligible for U.S. trade, eligible for your intended route, plans, scantlings, manning requirements, operating restrictions, amount of passengers or cargo based on stability, and specific Captain of the Port requirements which differ from port to port.
