On-site Inspection in China

Many Ukrainian entrepreneurs involved in trade or just starting to introduce products from Chinese manufacturers to the market often underestimate the importance of on-site inspection services in China. However, receiving a batch of inadequate quality or incorrect specifications poses significant risks, as returning it is highly problematic. On average, sea freight from China takes 60-65 days, which makes returns practically impossible. 

Additionally, purchasing test samples does not guarantee that the Chinese partner will be reliable.

What do you Need to Know about Product Quality On-site Inspection in China?

The most accessible and straightforward way to minimize risks is to inspect the quality of the goods in China before payment and shipment. Modern logistics companies provide a comprehensive range of services, allowing business owners to delegate logistics tasks to professional executors. This may include searching for suppliers in China and controlling their production.

The main thing for a business owner in Ukraine to understand is the following evaluation criteria:

  1. Key indicators include capacity, productivity, dimensions, weight, thickness, etc.
  2. Set of functions and their compliance with the manufacturer's specifications.
  3. Packaging. If necessary, on-site product inspection in China may include checking the presence of accessories, connection cables, adapters, and spare parts in the packaging.
  4. Packaging and labeling. Here, it is necessary to check the box's thickness, material, reliability, and all essential information on the label (batch number, barcode, date of manufacture).
  5. The presence of the logo, color matching, size, placement, etc.

Why is Cargo Cn-site Inspection in China Necessary?

Conducting quality control of goods in China before shipping to Ukraine presents a significant opportunity for every entrepreneur to reduce potential losses. It's been observed that about 30% of Chinese goods supplied may not meet specific requirements, leading to potential financial setbacks. However, the expenses for conducting expert inspections have been proven to pay off several times, making it a wise investment for your business.

Inspection is relevant in several cases:

  • Beginning cooperation with a new supplier.
  • Quality control of materials and components at the production stage.
  • Audit of the manufacturing process at the factory.
  • Inspection of goods in China at the warehouse regarding packaging quality and availability of necessary documentation.

What Types of On-site Inspections Can Be Conducted in China?

The quality control services provided by professional inspectors are divided into two categories depending on the location:

  1. On-site inspection of the received batch at the warehouse. This involves a visual assessment of packaging and labeling. If necessary, our specialist unpacks and checks the completeness and condition of the goods. These actions are part of warehouse services in China and occur before cargo consolidation and cargo shipment.
  2. Supplier verification and on-site factory inspection in China. In this case, the inspector visits the production facility to check the parameters and characteristics of raw materials, components, technology compliance, quality control systems, etc.
