Transport Engineering

One of our core areas of expertise consists of the engineering services we offer for heavy and out-of-gauge cargo, as well as a wide array of challenging commodities, situations, and circumstances. That’s why our daily business would be unimaginable without accurate, high-quality drawings, method statements, and 100% precise calculations, all of which are essential to do what we do best: raise the bar in reliability and quality for projects all over the world.

We support our client’s engineering teams at an early stage to design cargo in a way that is suitable for transportation, with the ultimate goal of minimizing cost and risk.

Physical assessment of incidents and evaluation of preventive measures.

Design studies outline and provide guidance on the design of stoppers, clips, cradles, grillage, and lifting and lashing points, which have a major impact on the safety of moving the cargo, as well as vehicle selection, for all modes of transport.

Feasibility studies cover a very wide range of topics, including an evaluation of environmental aspects, interests, and resources. In theoretical terms, a feasibility study is an assessment of the practicality of a proposed plan or method.

FEA is a modelling process to demonstrate how cargo or transport devices react to actual transport forces.

Performed by software and in line with the mode of transport and all relevant parameters, a lashing and securing plan provides the safest and most cost-effective method of lashing and securing.

A lifting drawing is a 2D AutoCAD® display of the technical details involved in an operational process. Lifting drawings show how the cargo will be rigged and lifted, including information about the ground-bearing pressure, the swing area, and the lifting gear.

Vessel- and barge-related transport solutions and calculations.

A transport proposal outlining step-by-step the full procedures and technical details related to the required scope of work.
Monitoring and recording of any cargo movement and acceleration during transport for analysis and statistics.
A rigging study is a detailed lifting analysis indicating crane details, working radius, capacity, and other information to determine whether a given crane is suitable or will have enough space to operate.

Ship consulting services help evaluate and select the best possible vessel types to meet the minimum cargo requirements in line with specific vessel criteria.

Stowage planning is a tool to select the most suitable vessel for the cargo and determine the best solutions to optimize storage space.

This type of analysis helps to check the route of the provided trailer and cargo configuration against the space available, obstacles en route, and other details related to trailer maneuverability in restricted areas.

Transport drawings are 2D AutoCAD® representations of the technical details involved in an operational process.

Port Captain Services, Surveying, and Supervision

In order to successfully navigate your maritime projects, our port captain, surveying, and supervision services combine in-depth knowledge with port and on-site experience, as well as customer-focused leadership. In addition to complete and sophisticated reports, surveying services include high-quality pictures, drawings, illustrations, tangible information, and best-practice solutions from our expert team.

dteq can perform inspections to determine if manufacturing is on track and in line with the specifications of the purchase order. If needed, dteq can also conduct the expediting portion of the process, ensuring that milestones are achieved.

dteq can be present during any cargo operations to take pictures and document everything in a professional report.

If your cargo or equipment suffer any damage, dteq can conduct a comprehensive damage survey with detailed pictures and proper descriptions to raise transparency, find the root cause behind the issue, and move towards potential recovery.

During the fabrication process, several milestones have to be achieved on time. dteq can perform these checks and report back to the client with pictures and a professional progress report.

A packing survey is usually conducted at the packer’s premises or fabrication yard. The goal is to review the packaging and marking of cargo against the client’s manual and requirements to mitigate the risk of damages.

dteq staff at the port can represent the cargo owner, forwarder, or vessel owner, organizing all necessary permits, movements, and lines of communication to ensure smooth operations and the timely provision of information.

dteq staff will monitor and record cargo movements during operations, such as loading, discharging, and transshipment, in nearly any port around the world.
