Commodity Inspections

In the case of fresh fruits and vegetables, or even cacao, these commodities can be very sensitive to external factors, and they can also be easily damaged during transportation should the packaging be subpar. There is also the risk that such commodities might also be fumigated with chemicals that are toxic to humans. Due to this sensitivity, it is highly advisable to have commodity inspections conducted upon departure, during transit or on arrival.


At CWM Survey & Inspection, our seasoned inspectors have years of experience under their belts and know all the tricks of the trade when it comes to commodity inspections. This means that you can trust that all your in and out going commodity consignments arrive in excellent condition and that they are safe for consumption or processing.
