Once the starting volume is recorded, the oil is transferred to other storage tanks via a meter. This meter also provides an unbiased measurement of the oil volume once ashore. These are called shore measurements.
If these two measurements are different, you have a third party inspector loss or gain. Consistently recording and reporting this information can identify trends which could be acted upon to increase accuracy and efficiency.
PortVision's TerminalSmart platform provides a Dock Management System that supports the collection and reporting of information such as third party inspector loss and gains in a manner that allows more informed decision making. Want to learn more? Then contact us today.
