Transports

RTS’s transportation specialty relies on professionals trained in the field of transportation, such as maritime surveyors, merchant navy captains, naval technical engineers and industrial engineers, all specialised not only in loss adjustments, but also in the interpretation of transportation policies proposing the corresponding settlements for damage derived from a loss by road, sea, or air.

Types of losses

  • Maritime transport, standard and temperature-controlled containers, vehicles, RORO cargo, bulk, general cargo, liquid and gaseous cargo, heavy cargo.

  • Supervision of cargo in containers.
  • Identification, verification and control of equipment at origin.

Our experience

  • Our adjustment network in Latin America, the US and the Caribbean, positions us as one of the most important Spanish bureaus with an international presence.
  • Our network of own offices on the Iberian Peninsula, America, and the Caribbean is complemented by those of the associates of VRS adjusters in the rest of the world, offering a swift, effective, and comparable service in our adjustment interventions.
