Loading/ Unloading Supervision

Service Scope

The aim of our container loading supervision service is to ensure that products are loaded and secured correctly, regardless of whether they are to be transported by container, ship or truck. A loading supervision may cover container condition, quantity,  packaging check or on client’s special request. As soon as loading has been completed , we seal containers with SGS security seals to reduce the risk of tampering and theft.

Unloading supervisions include similar checks of container integrity against checklists or invoices, to avoid import disputes and ensure products arrive in the same state in which they were loaded.

Remark: SGS does not verify authenticity of any Brand/Trademark of products. Client must check if the product is genuine with the Brand/Trademark owner directly.
