INS Survey differs from larger surveying companies thanks to it’s flat organisation. Senior Marine Surveyor and M.D. Rudi Gelper is active in the field every day. The same goes for the team of surveyors. Thanks to our ‘different’ organisation we continiously strive to be more flexible than others. All our surveyors master at least four languages, which is a positive element in working together with multicultural crews, or terminal personel and customers or stakeholders.

Our main offices are based within a 5-mile radius of the ports of Antwerp and Rotterdam. This makes for a very quick reaction time in case of urgent surveys. Most of the European Sea ports and inland waterway ports are our daily working terrain. Call INS Survey today to find how we can be of assistance.
