Container loading inspection – what it is and how it is beneficial

As an importer, there is nothing worse than receiving your goods and realising the quantity is incorrect or the goods are damaged. A lot of things can go wrong in the loading process or during shipment. In this blog post, I will guide you through the steps of the container loading inspection, what the benefits are, and how to make sure your goods are prepared for their shipping journey in the best way possible.

What is container loading inspection?

A container loading inspection typically takes place at the shipper’s factory or warehouse. The inspection is carried out to make sure the goods are correctly handled and safely loaded into the shipping containers for safe transportation and delivery to the final destination.

Container loading inspections include a number of steps:

1. Inspecting the quantity and quality of the goods

The inspector checks the quantity of the goods to make sure it matches the specification so that the correct number of goods are shipped off. The inspector also checks the quality of the goods to make sure they are in the right condition.

2. Inspecting the packaging of the goods

The inspector checks the packaging of the goods to make sure the material will protect the goods during shipping and that the labels are correct. Some buyers may require a specific packaging material for fragile goods and this needs to be verified.
