As per our principal’s instructions, a joint survey had to be conducted by Constellation Marine’s engineer surveyor on behalf of the carrier to assess the nature, cause and extent of damage to one air conditioning unit which was reportedly received in a damaged condition in a 40-foot container and stored at the consignee’s warehouse. A formal notification was sent by the cargo’s underwriter surveyor to the carriers via email. This in turn led to Constellation Marine Services getting appointed for the joint survey.
