Particularity of fruits and vegetables survey
During transportation of one shipment of load there can be several contractor carriers, several vehicles. And during all this way a lot of conditions of storage for such a delicate cargo as fruits and vegetables must be observed. If the carrier and insurance company don’t want to accept endamanagement it is necessary to involve a competent Third Party to solve the dispute.

Fruits and vegetables are perishable goods and it is important to observe all conditions during harvest, assortment, washing, laying, packing, storage and transportation. Often there is some nonobservance in the chain of delivery from manufacturer to the final receiver. Such situation can lead to a vendibility loss, full or half good’s damage, fruit and vegetable disease, shot delivery in quality as also in weight and so on. It is important to observe labeling of cargo place which is not always fully observed by the suppliers. In foreign trade practice it has become normal when supplier is in one country and the buyer in another and the good is dispatched from some other country (or as minimum from another city) and the goods receipt takes place in some other country or city different from the place of buyer. Under such conditions neither supplier nor buyer don’t see the goods and by doing so the goods, being perishable, can change its’ capacity during transportation. To defend risks because of the cargo price loss due to some reasons we recommend suppliers as also as buyers and all people in the chain of fruits/vegetables supply involve third party – Survey company for checking and fixation state of goods during change of ownership from one party to another.
