What is it?
We’re going to head out to your supplier on the day that they ship out your goods and we are going to make sure they load correctly, safely, and in-full. There’s a very good reason why you would want to do this and I know first-hand.
Back in 2009 we completed a Post Production Inspection of a 20FCL of gas bbqs in Xiamen. The order passed and it was time to load the container. But, we were not requested to do a Loading Inspection and so we were not on-site.
When the container arrived in Germany and it was opened at the buyer’s warehouse, there were several grills missing and that container seal had not been tampered with. The factory claimed they shipped in-full and so what recourse did the buyer have?
The quantity that arrived was less than the quantity contracted for, and that meant a loss. So if the value of your shipment is considerable, why wouldn’t you want a trusted partner to ensure you get everything that you paid for?
