CLI - Container Loading Inspection

Overview

The purpose of the Container Loading inspection is to oversee the careful loading of your goods. With all the time, effort and money that has been spent to get to this point, it is critical to ensure your goods are going to arrive in pristine condition. During the inspection not only are goods and container checks undertaken, vehicle checks and driver documentation checks are also carried out.

All Q2W inspectors are experienced in this most critical of task and are immune to the myriad of 'hurrying tactics' encountered when a factory is awaiting a final payment for the release of goods. Where ever possible, we arrange so that the Q2W inspector is in a position to authorise the release of funds either by direct communication with the client or be a client placing funds with Q2W's parent company China 2 West Ltd to allow the speedy release of goods that are fit for transit.

A report with supporting photographic and documentary evidence will be passed to clients within 24 hours of CLI completion.
