Draft Survey

Have Confidence that the Transaction is Accurate

Business Challenge

Due to the variance of estimating coal or mineral tonnage within the transport chain it is critical for accurate assessment of the load to ensure commercial transactions are accurate. As a small error can cause large variances in the final reported tonnage it is imperative that there is confidence in the independent third party assessment. This ensures the highest levels of accuracy are attained and true and transparent exchange is achieved between producer and buyer.
