Maintain Cargo Hold Cleanliness

Maintaining cargo hold cleanliness is vital in the process of transporting goods and materials. Inadequate cleaning can result in contamination, not only leading to damage claims from recipients, but also increased risk of corrosion and damage to your hull. Using non-approved cleaners can also lead to possible port state penalties, meaning less time earning at sea and failure to meet delivery times.
