Freight Inspection

Let us help you ensure that your merchandise reaches the final destination, meeting all of the required specifications.

How does Freight Inspection work?

The freight inspection is used by exporters, importers, or cargo agents and consists of the detailed analysis of the products before being shipped and upon arrival to the final client. This analysis includes quantity, quality, packaging, serial or reference numbers, marks, and the overall condition of the merchandise.


This service makes sure that your merchandise reaches the final destination, meeting all the required specifications.

Our Freight Inspectors are located throughout the United States. 



We currently offer three types of inspections:

Pre-Shipment Cargo Inspection

This inspection occurs when the merchandise owner wants to be sure that the seller is sending the correct product and that it is correctly packed, marked, and placed in the container. This service is typical when a first transaction with a shipper is being carried out for insurance, L/C, or import requirements purposes. Paying a vendor without meeting him or seeing the product you or your customer bought is always a high risk.

There are thousands of fake companies on the internet, yellow pages, etc., that can easily steal your money. Therefore, investing in a Freight inspection is a smart and cautious move!

Cargo Inspection when reported claims or damages

This inspection happens when the client wants to verify the current status of the merchandise, the damages or losses suffered, and understand the possible reasons for it.

It is a common service among LTL carriers, trucking, and 3PL companies. Our inspectors have all the knowledge, experience, and freight industry education to complete a thorough report to ensure the claim process is accurate and truthful.

Cargo Inspections at Port or Airport

This type of inspection is mainly used for large projects or for machines/products that are being shipped as breakbulk or placed below deck, and the client wants a third party to be present during the loading and unloading of the merchandise.


This service helps you ensure your cargo is loaded correctly and securely into the vessel and prevents unnecessary costs of transportation, miscommunication, or paperwork issues.


These inspections are charged by the hour, or fraction, and include the transportation of the inspector. The reports include photographs, detailed observations, and relevant information such as serial numbers, references, etc.
