Vessel Vetting

Our vetting process has a key role in supply chain operations, helping our due diligence customers eliminate the non-compliant options from their logistic chain and personal marine assurance profile, in turn ensuring cargo is moved safely. Terminal operators use RightShip’s vetting service to encourage safer vessels to enter their terminal and record a full audit trail to substantiate decision making.

RightShip’s vetting service is underpinned by our comprehensive data sets that highlight a vessel’s full history including the DOC Holder's profile, terminal reports, casualty history, Port State Control inspection performance, class records, market intelligence and inspection reports (RightShip inspection for dry vessels, SIRE for wet vessels). Once a vessel has loaded at a terminal that subscribes to RightShip, feedback from the terminal staff is recorded against the vessel for future reference, ensuring that non-commercial performance information is readily available to all RightShip users.

Our vetting superintendents use RightShip’s in-platform communications channels to liaise with key contacts across the industry and request any additional documentation. RightShip’s vetting team is comprised of shipping professionals with comprehensive industry experience. The diversity of vessel-specific expertise, understanding of shipping practices and shipping segments allows us to provide best practice guidance and long-term solutions to our customers.

Terminal Feedback reports submitted online

Terminal feedback, including dry berth or tanker terminal feedback reports, can be submitted to RightShip after a vessel has called at the port. The information in these reports provides RightShip with an operational history of the vessel, which is considered when assessing the suitability of the vessel in future vets. RightShip will pursue any issues or negative feedback with the vessel operators until a satisfactory close-out has been received.

Terminal questionnaires

Terminal Questionnaires (TQ) are offered as part of your ship scheduling and nomination process. They are fully automated and digitised by RightShip. Check a vessel’s suitability by requesting information specific to their mooring configuration, loading and deballasting rates and helicopter suitability prior to berthing. All information is uploaded and checked through the RightShip Platform by our experienced vetting staff.
