Weight control and inspection

The weight control and inspection of the shipment is the weighing, measuring, counting and calculating of Gross-weight, Net-weight vs Tare-weight in the shipment to be ensured the actual goods delivered or received in accuracy with document of shipping.

AIM Control’s surveyors, inspectors are who conduct the weight control and quantity survey for cargo of shipment at site of loading or discharging.

AIM Control’s tally-men and supervisors also perform the tally of quantity on each shipment (counting) carton to carton, bag to bag, box to box on the package.

In AIM weight control and inspection, on degree of moisture of goods also measured, sizes of shipment (goods, packages, label, shipping marks. . .) checked, temperature record (thermometer) and ventilation inspected.


In prevention of commercial frauds and theft of goods, we are always present at the time of delivery or receipt of goods (24/24) to strictly control process and inspect equipment of instrumentation, scale, supervise on personnel’s actions and vehicle, containers, vessel/ship’s holds, cranes until finishing.
