Product Overview

In order to further promote our mission of SAFETY OF LIFE AND CARGO AT SEA, we have expanded our container inspection capabilities with a web-based solution that captures information and media files using a mobile phone. Our team of surveyors, who offer decades of experience regarding container inspections, is now able to review and inspect container transport units remotely based on the material the client captures and uploads to the platform. Remote container inspections can be carried out anywhere in the world in loading facilities and warehouses for freight forwarders and ocean carriers.

  • Features - Workflow for Remote Container Inspections and live video option

    This solution comes with two available features:

    Workflow for Remote Container Inspections and a Live Video option with a direct NCB Surveyor live connection depending on the services requested.

    These remote inspections are performed via selfservice workflows. Each task in the workflows is guided with detailed instructions and examples.

    The workflows sent by NCB are received on a mobile device(s) of assigned representatives (i.e. Ocean Carrier, Container Freight Station, Marine Terminal, Shipper, Beneficial Cargo Owner, Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier, etc.).

    After receiving the request, the user can start and complete the workflow without the need of installing any app or content. The recorded information and media files will be analyzed by our surveyors to determine if the container transport unit is in compliance with applicable regulations and acceptable for ocean transport.


  • Direct interaction and consultation with NCB surveyors provide added value and expertise to users and container packers.
  • Ensures deficiencies will be detected and corrected prior to delivery, eliminating delays that may result in containers missing intended vessel.
  • Provides inspections on a global scale particularly in locations where dangerous goods expertise may not be available.

Potential Cost Savings and Efficiencies for remote inspections when the unit is found non-compliant with applicable regulations and standards, eliminating costs due to:
• Additional handling, demurrage and storage
• Trucker pickup and redelivery *
• Re-work to correct deficiencies
• Re-inspection of failed units

*May be exacerbated due to lack of hazmat driver availability

Clients can further improve the stability and predictability of their supply chains, improve planning accuracy and reduce administrative work related to rolled cargo.
