Inspection & Sampling Services

We provide top-quality cargo inspection services and trustworthy shore and vessel calibrations.

Our team at Atlantic Product Services has decades of experience providing reliable cargo inspection services throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. We provide in-depth inspections for cleanliness and quality following industry guidelines, and we also establish safety protocols for transportation and storage.

We can determine the quantity of a substance stored in a shore tank, petroleum tank or on a vessel, when the exact quantity is unknown for inventory or custody transfers. We provide accurate calibrations and precise measurements from tanks of any size, shape or design. Our detailed and comprehensive survey will produce an accurate charting and ensure the safety of your product.

APS’s testing services are often coupled with inspecting, sampling, measuring, and monitoring petroleum storage tanks, transportation vessels, power generation systems, waste water, and potable water.

APS’s approach revolves around providing unique solutions for customer needs. APS has the expertise to advise on testing options best suited for the situation and treatment options for offspec cargos for the specification requirements. Seasonality and sampling can greatly affect testing results, and we help improve operations for accuracy. We also understand the cost of delays and strive for the quickest turn arounds possible. Most testing is onsite, we’re willing to set up at client locations, and we leverage our strategic partners to fill client timelines and needs effectively.

Our service area for inspection work is limited to the northeast but we have strategic partnerships world-wide. We have offices in Houston and will be opening a laboratory soon.
