I guess you misunderstood my point, firstly, I didn’t load the container before the inspector came to my factory...
Sorry for my confusion, I jumped into conclusion that you had stuffed container before inspection by you story:
I was confused by the word "assemble".
In that container, that is 30 different items and each items need half an hour for assemble
I also hate corruptions, any kind of which. I have enough experience with SGS, BV and Cotecna, not as a manufacturer but as an end user, sometimes as an agent. However, don't take those institutes as enemies though there are some corrupted bad guys. Those institutes can protect you when needed. A story for you, a true story of mine:
I was once engaged in a food relief operation, sending thousands of tons of maize from Dar to Lusaka. Though the Zambia Gov't didn't request the inspection certificate, but for our own benefits, I bore the extra cost on my own to have invited the SGS to do the number taken at both loading and discharging points.
Aha, things happened. While the wagons were on the way, the Zambia gov't requested to offload the maize at several distribution points along the line, instead of directly to Lusaka so that they could save time and cost from re-distribution. We had to follow their instructions, it was a relief anyway. The SGS guy were mobilized form Zambia side along the railway line, of course, on our cost.
At last, when the operation finished and I asked for the return receipt from the Ministry, the permanent secretary refused, saying that according to the accumulated numbers collected from the villages, the total amount were not in compliance with the amount that was documented!
Out of my files came the SGS report, showing the certified numbers of the bags! It was not my fault for the missing bags. Both of us compromised, a receipt was issued- "...the whole batch of the relief was received...", without showing the exact figures of tons/bags, our obligation was released.
Keep it up, susansusan, I enjoyed your posts so much.
