HDG, the most trusted name to handle any fruit claim
We understand complexity

Fruit is known to be the most complex export product. Every variety has its own storage specifications and transport compliance regulations. In our reports we evaluate not only the nature of the damage, but also the extent, the possible cause and the consequences. All reports are double checked by another senior employee. This helps to avoid errors and to keep us alert – every day, every survey.

Be prepared, ask for a Nivre Expert

With the number of claims on the rise, insurance companies are increasingly asking for a Nivre Expert. The Netherlands Institute of Register Experts -NIVRE- manages the Registers of Damage Experts, Risk Experts and Coordinators of Fraud Management. The reports of Nivre Experts meet the highest European and international standards and considered to be the strongest evidence in expert reports. 

Any time, any place

We understand that time is of the essence. Our survey experts are fully focused on cargo surveys and are therefore always available to survey your cargo within a few hours.

Arjan Voogt

senior surveyor 

“I have more then 25 years experience as fruit surveyor, I am a registered Nivre expert and closely follow all literature updates about fruit diseases and new researches on decays. Still my reports are always checked by another senior at HDG. 

It doesn’t make me feel mistrusted. The contrary, it gives me confidence, makes my reports more credible and keeps me alert on any deviations in the parameters, to keep track of tendencies in the industry.”
