It is common to buy a new or used shipping container for shipping or exporting goods overseas. These containers are commonly referred to as shipper owned containers. Shipper owned containers are a nice alternative to using a container provided by a shipping line, especially since you own the shipper owned container once it arrives overseas.
Shipper owned containers require a shipper survey along with the purchase of the container. Amongst other things, the shipping container survey verifies that the shipper owned container has a valid or current CSC certificate for overseas shipping. Most shipping lines will not accept your shipper owned container without a valid CSC survey certificate.
When ordering a shipper owned container from Jake, we will supply you with the CSC survey certificate prior to container pickup. Jake works with independent third party survey professionals to inspect containers and provide shipping survey certificates.
