Surveyor

A surveyor is a person or company charged with monitoring the loading and unloading processes, quality and condition, as well as the identifying of defects or damages of a cargo.

In the logistics industry external and independent surveyors are commissioned mainly for insurance reasons or for very expensive or sensitive freight. For some transports insurances may require the use of a surveyor. The surveyor permanently documents every movement of the freight and has all the security-relevant documents in order to have free access to the goods at all times.
