Chapter 26 – Performing an Incoming Inspection at Your Warehouse

The goods will arrive at your warehouse after a long voyage and clearing customs. The next step is performing an incoming inspection ASAP.

You may ask: “Why should I perform yet another inspection?” The answer is your products and their packing have been subjected to constant vibration on the ocean liner for weeks. They have also traveled by truck on substandard rural roads in China. The goods probably have had a few good jolts during the journey.

This inspection is less intense because characteristics like color do not need verification again. Once the products pass this last hurdle, it is time to deliver the goods to your customers
