Marine Commercial Surveys - Pre-Shipment Survey

Pre-Shipment Survey


VDL Marine Services carries out Pre-Shipment inspections of goods on behalf of Overseas Clients. The purpose of this is primarily to verify that the goods conform to contractual specification, are packed according to required method and are marked with necessary markings for the export. This also assures correctness to the agreed quality and quantity, and is conducted in most cases prior to shipment, and in the country of exportation.

After completion of the survey we give suitable descriptive clauses relating to any visible damages of goods, physical defects, structural abnormalities that might be construed by the third parties as defects which develop after shipment.

Our surveyors are sufficiently competent to have his terms of reference extended, if necessary, to permit his intervention with reference to stowage problems and any other subjects giving rise to disputes which can develop during the course of loading.

Pre-shipment survey shows if cargo is already injured before loading and shipping. Pre-shipment inspections and pre-loading survey are included in cargo condition survey.
