Cargo Claim Stand Off

We were instructed to make local investigations in a North Africa country into why a ship laden with bagged rice was not being discharged by the cargo receiver, which was a local state owned trading company. The investigation pointed to corruption amongst top-level officials in this company – officials who were too senior for the local P&I correspondent to influence.

We used our own connections to establish a link to a close advisor to the country’s President, and through this channel were able to find a face-saving solution that allowed the cargo to be discharged and the ship to sail.
