Maersk Announces Physical Container Inspection Pilot

Carriers are working to improve safety and reliability in the Containerized Maritime Supply Chain by verifying that cargo descriptions match the actual contents of the container and that the contents of the container are correctly stuffed, lashed and secured.

As part of this work, Maersk recently implemented a Physical Container Inspection Pilot within North America. It’s currently performing inspections for Import and Export cargo into the ports of Newark Berth 88, Houston Bayport, Miami Pomtoc, and New Orleans Ceres terminals.
