Cargo Survey is the inspection and supervision of freight before it is sent, after its arrival or while it is stored at a warehouse. It is a very important part of assuring that your insurance will cover you if anything goes wrong and the only way to catch issues before they arise. Thus, even though it is sometimes considered optional, it is a key factor in international logistics where direct contact with the forwarder is not an option. Negligence can cause delays (shippings that don't follow ISO standards might get hold up at customs), added costs or even outright terrible surprises (improperly tagged or unsecured cargo might break or get lost). For all of these reasons, it is important to be informed by a trustworthy source at all times. So if you have a project and fear that some of these complications might come about, contact us and rest assured.
