Loading Certificate – Inspection Report

A Loading Certificate or Inspection Report comes from SGS or similar and typically includes:

  • A thorough check of the overall appearance of the cargo and any packaging.
  • Verification of loading the product by checking the number and size of each part of the shipment against the contract.
  • Ensuring the following the proper handling procedures during loading.
  • Also ensuring that the transport medium is clean and sanitary.
  • Ensuring the adequate stowing, securing and protection of the shipment from the elements.

It is also important from the seller’s perspective to obtain a Loading Certificate; as it is additional proof in case of the mishap in transit that the seller took all due care to ensure successful delivery to the buyer.
