Cargo quality checks (QC’s)

18th March, 2020

With the current travel restrictions in place for Australia, we do note that this can pose difficulties for those needing to meet with their suppliers to perform product or packaging checks prior to shipping.

While we recognise that undoubtedly, your team are the best people to conduct these inspections under normal circumstances, we do have an alternative solution that may well help you keep cargo moving during these difficult times.

In particular China, where the factories are getting back up and running, Our agents are well placed to be able to meet with suppliers on your behalf to review products  based on your specifications. 

This is only a supportive measure and the agent is unable to offer guarantees on behalf of the factory but again, having a neutral party review on your behalf may well allow you to move the goods with more confidence until travel restrictions are lifted. This is not to replace any Government mandated inspections that may apply to things like electrical goods etc. 

With each customers goods and needs being different we will agree on a scope of work in each instance, the basic scope of services to be provided include;

  • Visit the manufacture
  • Check quality of manufactured goods against agreed standards
  • Take photos and videos to share prior to any approval to ship the goods
  • Checking quantity and volume
  • Check client specific needs as agreed

Please get in touch with should you require any further details.
