In cases of unresolved disputes, the charterers and owners – through a mutual agreement – are entitled to appoint a 3rd independent bureau which will provide a final outcome for both parties involved.
However, at Prime Navigation we strongly believe that this should be the last resort. Our team can undertake any dispute, utilise all available means to check the results and verify whether the above requirements are met. After analyzing the presented speed claim in damages and the performance evaluation report provided, our bureau proceeds to an in-depth analysis in order to assist the shipping operators and strengthen their position against any presented dispute. We would like to point out that any Post Voyage analysis report must be treated as the last resort even if the same is clearly given to the charter party and/or the fixture recap. However, in case an amicable solution is not reached, our team will be prepared to present an analysis and provide support until the case is referred to arbitration, without further involvement of the operator in charge.
