Load-Port and Pre-Shipment Assays

SGS’s international network of laboratories offers third party commercial analysis services at all critical supervision and transfer points during transport of your shipment, including load-port, pre-shipment and settlement analysis and assays. We use uniform analytical and operational methods, follow industry-leading quality assurance and quality control practices, and use standardized templates for data reporting.

SGS provides load-port or pre-shipment assays to:

  • Provide underwriters with the data required to insure the shipment for the approximate dollar value.
  • Ensure financial parties can calculate partial payment while the parcel or cargo is en-route to the customer.

Assay techniques are chosen based on turnaround time and quality.

SGS works for you to protect your interests and reduce your risk. Partner with us today for independent and reliable commercial analysis.
