  Reasons to Perform A Survey

There are many reasons to survey your shipping containers: If you ever want to send your container(s) overseas by ship, rail or truck, then a survey is mandatory. Even if you're not planning on transporting your containers now, your situation may change. A survey ensures that the container(s) you're buying are inspected by a licensed 3rd party who will inspect, photograph and certify they are safe and truly cargo-worthy.


  The Components Of A Shipping Container CSC Plate



  • A 3rd-party, licensed surveyor schedules an appointment at the depot to inspect the container(s).
  • At the depot using a container stacker or intermodal forklift, the container(s) are moved from tall stacks to the inspection/staging area.
  • After driving to the depot, the surveyor is shown the container(s) with the correct BIC codes (serial numbers) to be inspected.
  • The Surveyor examines each container individually and takes photos at all angles inside and out.
  • Working off a checklist, the Surveyor examines: the structural integrity, doors, floor, corner castings & posts, panel tolerances, roof bows, and uses a forklift to check the underside for wear & tear, plus much, much more.
  • If anything is found to be out of spec, the Surveyor requires the depot to repair the container(s) to ISO specifications before export is allowed.
  • The Surveyor affixes a new ACEP survey approval sticker to the container(s) CSC plate with an integrated serial number for easy online verification by customs officials and shipping lines.
  • The container(s) can now be shipped overseas, sent by rail or by truck to any imaginable destination worldwide.
