In view of the fact that Clubs’ Letters of Undertaking are widely accepted by local Authorities, the personnel of the P&I Department may assist in providing Clubs’ guarantees to avoid vessels’ detention or arrest.
We have had extensive contacts and established good and stable relations with Harbour Masters, clerks of Marine Administrations, ports Authorities, Custom’s Authorities, Ecology Committees at Novorossiysk, Tuapse, Taganrog, Yeisk, Rostov-on-Don, Temryuk, Azov and Port-Kavkaz. It helps us to fit the bills of the P&I Correspondent for the best, quickest and amicable solving of any problems with local Authorities in order to reduce claims amount.
Pro-active attendance & follow-up
Although we are always careful not to exceed our principals’ instructions, we consider that it is our duty to fully assess the current situation and case development so that we may keep our principals closely advised of potential developments and liability prospects. It is quite usual for us to make careful recommendations as to the options available based on our local knowledge and experience.
