BMT Surveys, a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd., an international design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has announced the launch of a new App which will provide mobile access to its world-renowned CargoHandbook database. The App is now available as a free download for both Android and iOS users.

CargoHandbook is the world’s largest online database for cargo transportation in the marine industry. As a rich source of knowledge, BMT Surveys aims to provide and share information on cargo transportation with the wider market and therefore help to reduce the number of cargo incidents and claims that occur.

Jeroen De Haas, Managing Director at BMT Surveys explained, “A strong understanding of cargoes and their specific transportation requirements is the key to ensuring the cargo arrives at its destination undamaged. With this App customers will have direct access to a large amount of carriage guidelines for more than 800 commodities, whether they are behind their desk or on board a vessel.”

As well as a basic description and photograph of the cargo product, people can access information on the shipment/storage requirements including optimum temperature/humidity and moisture and the risk factors associated with the particular product.
