English term or phrase: Vessel Experience Factor (VEF)
This is a definition I found on http://www.ifia-ac.org/bulletins/TB02_1.htm.

The VEF expression appears in a legal text I translate at the moment but I don't know if any French equivalent exists.


A Vessel Experience Factor [VEF], is a historical compilation of ship-to-shore cargo volume variations and was designed to be used, primarily, as a loss control tool to help assess the validity of quantities derived from shore tank measurements. Vessel experience factors are also frequently used to determine custody transfer quantities when shore-based measurements are not available.
