Relying on capable forces, a worldwide inspectors network, and cooperation with approved laboratories, asco is ready to provide inspections at home and abroad. Commodity inspections are divided into two groups according to customer needs:

1. Inspection in the country of manufacture of origin

These inspections are carried out to inform the buyers about the purchased goods’ status, such as the quality of the product and the cargo quantity. In general, the benefits of pre-shipment inspection (PSI) or inspection at the origin include the following:

  • Sampling and testing to check compliance of the cargo with its related standard (COI Issuance)
  • Ensuring the soundness of the goods before loading
  • Inspection of the packaging of goods to ensure the soundness of the goods in the process of transportation
  • Inspection of compliance of quantity of goods with shipping documents (weight, number packaging, etc.)
  • Reduction of customs costs during clearance

Also, to complete the process above and guarantee the quality of customers’ goods, asco international is ready to provide the following services:

Packaging inspection

These inspections are carried out to check the compliance of the goods with the customer’s order, the relevant standards regarding the vulnerable goods, and the ones with special identification of inspected and tested goods; inspectors attach labels and seals to cargo.

Loading supervision

Since the damage occurs mainly at the time of delivery and during the transportation and loading, from the time of delivery of the factory to the carrier, this supervision is done at the customer’s request.

Color marking

asco international offers to mark goods to help differentiate customer’s products from cargo interference, misplacement, and weight differences. This happens simultaneously with the inspection to separate customer goods (discharge supervision service is also part of the inspection process).

2. Discharge port inspection

Destination inspections are mainly to approve goods for the banking system, using visual inspections to confirm the quantity and quality of goods in the destination ports.

Discharge monitoring

Monitoring the unloading of goods to inform customers of the damage to the goods in transportation and unloading.

Condition survey

These inspections are carried out to determine the extent of the damage to the damaged goods and prepare a report for judicial follow-up and claim damages.
