A pre-loading survey is conducted before the loading of cargo onto a vessel. The survey is typically carried out by an independent marine surveyor, who inspects the cargo to ensure that it is properly prepared for transport and that the vessel is suitable for carrying the cargo.
The purpose of a pre-loading survey is to minimize the risk of damage to the cargo during loading and transportation, and to ensure that the cargo is in compliance with relevant regulations and standards. The surveyor will typically inspect the cargo for any visible damage or defects and may also check documentation such as packing lists and bills of lading to confirm that the cargo is properly identified and labelled.
In addition to inspecting the cargo, the surveyor will also inspect the vessel to ensure that it is suitable for carrying the cargo. This may include checking the vessel’s stability and load capacity, as well as ensuring that the cargo is properly secured and stowed.
Overall, the goal of a pre-loading survey is to ensure the safe and efficient transport of cargo by identifying and addressing any potential issues before loading begins.
