Portugal (Lisbon) Back to Overview
IMCS-Portugal offers its services in all Portuguese ports on the mainland, as well as on the islands. We offer the full range of marine and hull & machinery surveys, cargo services and transport consultancy at a high professional level and at competitive rates. IMCS-Portugal also provides more specialised services such as condition surveys of project cargo and loss prevention advice. We have a good relationship with the local insurance market, P&I Club correspondents and many of the major shipping agencies. Since becoming operational early 2001, IMCS-Portugal has been involved in cases concerning cargo damages, hull & machinery damages, "fit to load" cargo surveys and on/off hire surveys in all Portugese ports.
