In the case of food aid cargoes, Control Union provides not only inspection of goods at the port of discharge and at the inland destinations, we "superintend the cargo flow" as well. To this end, we endeavor to mitigate damages "on the spot" to alleviate further damages to the goods. In addition, Control Union provides their customers with full support by liaisons with the ocean carriers, freight forwarders, vessel agents, inland carriers and warehouse personnel.
In addition to the above, CU offers full laboratory analysis at our independent laboratories.
