Pre shipment inspection

Pre shipment inspection

Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI) is a quality control method in supply chain management that verifies the quality of goods purchased from suppliers before shipment. It ensures compliance with buyer specifications and purchase order terms.

Pre-Shipment Inspection Process

The PSI process involves a final random review of finished products when at least 80% of orders are produced and packed for export. Samples are selected randomly and checked against standards and procedures to reduce risks associated with online commerce.
