    A competently developed cargo stowage plan allows one to quickly make informed decisions on nomination of transport means suitable for transportation, enhance cargo distribution efficiency , calculate necessary securing devices, providing transportation safety and cargo integrity es, thus reducing transportation costs.

  • Cargo Information Development

    In compliance with Regulations VI/1.2 and VI/2 of the International Convention SOLAS-74, as amended, our organisation, upon a shipper's request, develops Information on cargo transport characteristics and properties , with necessary and sufficient cargo securing devices specified. We provide a service of development of General Cargo Information and CTU (container, open-top container, roll-trailer, flat-rack, etc.) Cargo Information to our Customers.

  • Author's Supervision

    Author's supervision is done in order to ensure the decisions contained in the developed documentation are implemented, which is one of the principal conditions for successful realisation of any project. The main goal of author's supervision is to maximum extent ensure implementation of the project decisions needed for safe cargo loading/discharging and transportation.

    Author's supervision conducted by a specialist-developer of the project is a guarantee that the project will be carried into effect promptly and to the fullest extent, irrespective of possible change of the initial data and force-majeure circumstances.We are ready to support our projects worldwide

  • Expert Reports

    • Expert reports on accidents related to transport. Investigations into accidents that took place in the course of carriage of various cargo types, resulting in breakdown/loss of cargoes, damage to/wreck of the ship, injury/loss of life. The picture of the accident is reconstructed, circumstances and causes of the accidents are identified on the basis of the data provided by the Customer. After the investigation competent authorities are able to make assessment of damages caused by the accident, determine degree of guilt of the responsible personnel. Carrying out of expert examinations upon requests from competent authorities and any party of the transport process relates to the same activity.
    • Expert opinion with regard to projects developed by other organisations
    • Advice on readiness of objects (cargo units) for transportation.

  • Cargo Safe Stowage and Securing for CTU

    Nowadays more and more cargoes, including bulky ones, are transported in cargo transport units (CTU) such as container, open-top container, flat-rack, roll-trailer, etc. Standard stowage and securing schemes [1, 2] have been developed for a vast number of cargoes carried in containers and other CTU (see: РД 31.11.21.18-96 Regulations for the Safe Sea Carriage of Cargoes in Containers; IMO/ILO/UNECE Code of Practice for Packing of Cargo Transport Units (CTU Code)).For the rest of cargoes such schemes have to be developed individually taking into account their transport characteristics and properties so as to comply with all conditions to be abided for the purpose of a particular transportation.The final stage is inspection of a packed CTU for compliance with the designed schemes, with formalisation of a CTU Packing Certificate.Not only do specialists of our company have long-term experience in working out of such schemes, but they actively participate in working out of national and international regulatory documents for safe cargo transportation in CTU. When necessary, we carry out research of cargo transport characteristics and properties.

  • Solutions for Logistics, Construction and Procurement

    There are three major questions most interesting for logistics, engineering and procurement companies:

    1. 1. Commodity limits (maximum overall dimensions and gross mass of cargo units for which transportation within a certain route is feasible);
    2. 2. Transportation feasibility, price and timing estimation;
    3. 3. Maximum possible use of tonnage and transport means cargo carrying capacity with minimisation of securing and dunnage materials, which directly influences the stevedoring costs and timing.

    This kind of shipments is being recognised as an “innovation” by Russian sea-river tonnage, and every shipment is considered individually, which may incur additional time and cost expenses for the Customer.

    Clients of LLC "TransEngineering Company" are offered to gain competitive advantage by applying to our professional team, their expert knowledge and experience to learn how to:

    • Understand the whole shipment structure, including comprehensive analysis of all underlying costs inside each transport chain. This will allow one to plan shipment costs and timing correctly;
    • Develop technical documentation (stowage and securing schemes, voyage instructions, etc.) in accordance with international and local standards, applicable throughout shipment lifetime, including approval by authorised local administrations, which serves as a good advantage when providing carriers, stevedoring and construction organisations with readily available technical task;
    • Win a significant advantage through time planning and cost estimation especially by Procurement and Construction companies, who may have agreed equipment delivery schedules in respect to particular projects expected for realisation.
