Company Profile

Maritime Shipping Bureau is a leading provider of innovative, value-added solutions to the Shipping and Insurance industries in the Black Sea region as well as worldwide.

The company provides unsurpassed technical expertise and consultancy services to its customers engaged in international trade, shipping, marine insurance and reinsurance and their legal counterparts.

Originally founded in the provision of marine survey and adjusting services, MSB gradually expanded its scope of expertise to include shipbuilding, repair supervision, technical ship management and offshore technology.

MSB firm core values combined with the highest level of marine claims handling, nautical operations, marine engineering and naval architectural capability earned the trust of a significant number of international companies.

The company has become the leader in high-profile attendances concerning major hull and machinery damages, supervision of repairs and claims services. We handle claims fast, efficiently with close cooperation between the technical and claims experts, which is both beneficial to the Assured and the Underwriters.

MSB values its role as a regional leader in marine and offshore technology with an
emphasis on marine operations, dynamic positioning, vessel systems, naval architecture and structures. Our surveyors are one of the few accepted by insurance underwriters as approved Marine Warranty Surveyors.

MSB is highly valued for its most experienced staff of the Average Adjusting Division, who are usually instructed to collect general average or salvage security and prepare general average statements  to effect settlement.

Our skills are supported by robust QA/QC and HSE systems which are essential for carrying out detailed projects within a safe and efficient framework.

MSB operates through its Head Office in Varna, Bulgaria and ensures availability of surveyors in all major ports in Bulgaria, Romania and Turkey on a very short notice.

MSB experts travel worldwide for on site attendance whenever requested sufficiently in advance.
