This ensures that the end user will realize on time and on budget project execution.
There are a number of stakeholders involved in such specialized project shipments, including: the end user, main contractor, sub-contractors, freight forwarder, insurance broker, lead cargo insurer and cargo surveyors. At CJA we feel that a key consideration for any party engaged in the shipment of high value project cargoes that specialist, independent marine personnel or insurer’s in-house experts are engaged early on in the project schedule to ensure that the end user and insurers interests are protected.

We opine that it is a real need for all involved in a project to be aware of this and to lower the risk. We have the expertise and boldness to take on tasks like these and accomplish excellence in our delivery.
