Mining Load-Port and Pre-Shipment Assays
SGS’s international network of laboratories offers third party commercial analysis services at all critical supervision and transfer points during transport of your shipment, including load-port, pre-shipment and settlement analysis and assays.
We use uniform analytical and operational methods, follow industry-leading quality assurance and quality control practices, and use standardised templates for data reporting.
SGS provides load-port or pre-shipment assays to:
- Provide underwriters with the data required to insure the shipment for the approximate dollar value.
- Ensure financial parties can calculate partial payment while the parcel or cargo is en-route to the customer.
Assay techniques are chosen based on turnaround time and quality.
