Pre-shipment inspection is a part of supply chain management and an important quality control method for checking the quality of goods bought by clients. Inspection at the pre-shipment stage helps ensure that items being shipped complies with governing purchase order, contract, and specification. Pre-shipment inspection is agreed upon between a buyer, a supplier and a bank and can be used to initiate payment for the letter of credit
Pre-shipment Inspection is a critical step prior to the shipment of items from suppliers worldwide. Before the items are shipped out, it is essential to perform an inspection to minimize the risk of loss due to nonconforming items, incorrect quantities, inadequate packing, pre-shipment damages, and missing shipment documents.
