1. Prepare an easy-to-read manual
Some importers are very organized and write a clear QC checklist. The best practice is to show a lot of photos. For each potential defect, show one photo on the left (photo of the defect), and another one on the right (photo of what is acceptable).
It is quite helpful to inspectors, but make sure they don’t need 1 hour to read this manual! A good target is 5 min.
By the way, this document is also useful to the supplier and the factory technicians. Write “NO” in red or “OK” in green, on the photos.
2. Hire your own inspectors and train them to their standard
If the factories you work with are in the same area, and if your production is not very seasonal, this can be a good idea. You will be certain the same inspectors will check your products, and you can take time to show them what is acceptable.
3. Work with a smaller QC firm
The 3 or 4 very large QC firms have special teams for their large clients. But they won’t do this for importers with less than 200 containers a month to inspect.
On the other hand, human-size inspection firms will be happy to train their inspectors to your requirements if you represent a steady volume of work. You can require them to use the same 2-3 employees for your shipments. From my observations, some of our clients greatly appreciate this service.
