Container Inspections prior to the Caribbean Season 2017

If you have a shipping container and you are looking to move it by sea at the end of this season you will most likely need to check your CSC plate.

Containers need a yearly or biyearly MOT depending on their age. It involves an inspection from the RINA or Lloyds Surveyors to make sure that your container is in good condition for shipping. Basically should there be an accident in a port and your container does not have a valid inspection certificate, your insurance would not cover you. Plus, most shipping lines will ask for a Certificate (CSC) of Shippers own containers (SOC) prior to loading the container on a vessel.

Please see a youtube link below that I made a while ago, it may actually put you to sleep, but it does cover what an inspection requires. I do look a little younger and a little less knackered!

Please get in touch with Cristina or Eduardo in the CMF office here in Palma to arrange an inspection anywhere in the world. or

Alternatively drop by the office in STP in Palma to discuss your needs or call on +34 971 432 600
