MTI's principal business is performing inspections of cargo which has allegedly been damaged or pilfered while in transit by common or contract carriers and forwarders. Inspections include the basic written reports made in the field jointly with the consignee or claimant. The inspection reports will be supported by as many color photographs as necessary. If opinions and suggestions are in order, they will be provided in a separate supplemental report.  For a sample of a completed MTI report, click here.

Fees for standard inspection reports average about $59.00. Standard reports are those which can be completed within two to three working days from the date of assignment, during normal business hours, Monday through Friday (excluding legal holidays) without specific appointments and within metropolitan areas regularly served by MTI. No additional fees will be charged by MTI without the prior consent of the customer.

MTI can also provide laboratory testing of shipments which have allegedly been damaged by freezing or by having been subjected to a freeze-thaw cycle. MTI also offers laboratory testing of imported shipments which show evidence of water damage to determine if the wetting was caused by fresh (rain) or salt (sea) water.

MTI also offers evaluations of packaging and packing methods, determinations of proper classification of freight and technical investigations of all kinds. MTI can also inspect shipments prior to tender to assess their condition and the adequacy and conformance of packaging to be certain that the freight is suitable for transportation.
