The Container Loading Check is the last step in the production process. Before signing off and making the final payment, verify that the product’s final specifications are accurate and that the actual quantity ordered is safely placed into your container.
During a Container Loading Check, your inspector will randomly select boxes to verify that each carton contains the quantity of product ordered, the quality matches the specifications and/or approved sample provided by you, and that all packaging material contains the correct barcodes, labeling, and packing materials. The entire container loading process is rigorously supervised to ensure that all paid-for goods are loaded into the vehicle. A CLC decreases the possibility of shipment-related damage.
Container loading inspections including the following processes:
1. Examining the quantity and caliber of the merchandise
The inspector verifies that the quantity of the items follows the specifications so that the correct quantity of goods is transported. The inspector also examines the goods’ quality to ensure that they are in proper condition.
2. Examining the packaging of the merchandise
The inspector examines the packing of the goods to ensure that the material will protect them during transport and that the labels are accurate. This must be confirmed, as certain customers may require a specific packaging material for fragile goods.
3. Supervising loading and checking containers and vehicles
The inspector monitors the loading procedure to ensure that nothing is destroyed. Additionally, shipping containers and trucks are inspected to ensure that they are undamaged, secure, and properly sealed prior to delivery.
4. Documenting load conditions and generating a report
The inspector documents loading circumstances, such as whether they reduce potential road hazards. When the inspection procedure is complete, the importer receives a comprehensive report with images and information.
Is every container inspected? Only 2% to 10% of all containers worldwide are inspected.
