Webb Fontaine Group

Inspection of Commodities

Our Commodities Inspection and Testing Services entail performance of vessel draft surveys, inspection and gauging of vessel and shore tanks, cargo sampling and topographic volumetric surveys at loading and ports of discharge. All these activities are conducted at different stages of the logistics chain as may be required by Sellers and Buyers.

The survey inspection and topographic survey procedures strictly follow the applicable international standards such as those required by ASTM, ISO and GAFTA, among others, and use appropriate software, such as Microsoft CAD. These are utilized to establish an independent third-party quantity measurement of commodities. The Inspection Reports generated are used as bases in the settlement of bank obligations between contracting parties.

Its inspection services in the Oil, Gas and Chemicals sector is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
