Incidents of vessel and equipment damage, cargo loss/tampering/damage, personal injury and other terminal and warehouse related accidents should be immediately reported to the Supervisor on duty at the time of occurrence, and where applicable, the relevant reports/documents lodged with the Line Manager. It is advised that, soon after, Claimants should submit a letter to PLIPDECO's Insurance Officer indicating their intent to make a claim while their documents are being gathered to complete the claims package.
