Until recently, the management of container inspection and repair procedures has been based on concepts which were not rigorously scientific and which, above all, rendered the job of verifying damage statistics extremely laborious and insufficiently accurate. In order to offer container owners a greater degree of control over inspection and repair management, Tecnomar, the Genoa-based consultant, has devised a computer-assisted monitoring system which differs substantially from traditional methods. The system conceived can be utilised both by leasing companies and shipping lines, as well as other carriers, and by insurance companies. In this article Captain Sergio M Crovato, president and founder of Tecnomar outlines the system, describes its functioning and highlights some of its advantages for container operators and lessors particularly in the area of cost savings.
