Jay Thomas: Hello there, We're exporting a mixed FCL from Maanshan, Anhui province, including guillotine machinery and 4 coils of galvanized steel. We booked this on MSC line to sail from Shanghai port on June 14, but MSC has come back and said we need a third-party 'loading supervision certificate', which we had not heard of before. Can you provide this service in Maanshan? Or can we take photos of the loading and send to you to check? Or maybe you can see everything by video call? Let us know soon! Thanks
