Container loading supervision

A container loading supervision (CLS) involves the presence of one or more inspectors during the loading of a container, typically one or more full container loads (FCL). This may take 4 to 8 hours per container, depending on the size of the container (20’ ctr, 40’ ctr) and the type of pf products of commodities loaded. Inspectors would usually assess whether the container is seaworthy (light and water tests), before loading begins. Depending on the scope of work requested, the inspector will count the items, perhaps draw random samples, check labels, make sure dunnage is placed properly when and where required. He or she will also witness and photograph the sealing of the container.
