Hatch cover condition is crucial

Proper inspection, maintenance, and operation of hatch covers are crucial for the safety of the vessel and the care of its cargo. Following hatch cover maintenance best practices significantly reduces the risk of insurance claims for cargo damage due to wetting and helps to preserve the vessel’s seaworthiness and the safety of the crew, along with protecting the marine environment and avoiding supply chain disruptions.
