What is Pre-Shipment Inspection?
The Pre-shipment Inspection or PSI survey, often called Final Random Inspection (FRI), ensures that the things have been manufactured, match the customers' request, and are set up to deliver. It is a quality control system to help you secure the nature of the completed product.
The Pre-shipment Inspection is a thorough investigation of samples randomly selected from the shipment. It is usually done once all products have been finished and the order has been loaded at least 80%.
The Benefits From Pre-Shipment Inspection:
- Verify that the request was produced successfully and according to specification before the shipping.
- Verify the accuracy of the merchandise at the source to prevent charges for defective goods.
- Verify the item's capability and security to avoid health and security risks.
- Determine the accuracy of the shipping labels, packaging, and marking.
