Cargo Surveying Training Certificate

Refrigerated & Frozen Cargo Inspection

Introduction

Refrigerated cargo ship, typically used to transport perishable commodities which require temperature-controlled transportation, such as fruit, meat, fish, vegetables, dairy products and other foods, the Refrigerated Cargoes Surveyor should make sure that the cargo presented for carriage under refrigeration should be pre-cooled to the carrying temperature since normally the vessel or container is only provided with sufficient power to deal with heat leakage and the modest amount of heat generated by living cargoes and be aware that the prime consideration when receiving refrigerated cargo for carriage is to see that it is at the correct temperature. There is always the possibility of a slight rise in the temperature of the surface during transit which the ship can well take care of provided the internal bulk of the packages are at the correct temperature.
Our course is fully covering these areas and more.
