Sampling and Inspection Services

Sampling and Inspection Services

Accurately assess your goods before you order.

Despite the enormous speed of the worldwide flow of goods, quality and the control of it must not be left behind. We take care of this with our sound sampling. In Germany, this is usually done in the importers’ warehouse. Alternatively, importers have the goods sampled in the country of origin and send the samples to us in advance for analysis. Sampling is carried out by trained experts and in accordance with the relevant regulations.

After sampling we offer loading controls. Here, the sampled goods are accompanied in an overseas container during loading, thus ensuring that the goods are not mixed up. All steps are of course documented with reports, protocols and pictures and then made available to the customer. With GALAB, sample logistics is also part of the service.


Our sampling on site shows that speed does not have to come at the expense of quality. We are of course quickly on hand when needed, no matter where in the world. And our experts are not only many in number, but also highly qualified. The samples of your raw material are carefully obtained and professionally sealed and delivered to our laboratory in Hamburg as quickly as possible. Once there, the analysis quickly determines whether the goods meet the requirements of the market or not. In the end you know exactly what you are doing and can plan accordingly.

Compliance checks

Rules and regulations not only have the habit of being in the immediate vicinity of global trade, they also keep changing – sometimes easily, but sometimes quickly and fundamentally. Regulations are diverse and must be mastered in order to carry out the sampling correctly. This applys for various substances. We are equipped with the knowledge of the latest developments – as with our high-precision laboratory analysis. Proper sampling requires a lot of experience in how to adapt the relevant sampling standards in terms of regulations, recommendations and how to execute them. Here too, we can look back on many years of expertise – which is constantly being expanded and updated.

Loading Control

Trust is good, control is better. That’s why we also get to the bottom of things when your goods are bound for delivery. Accurate monitoring of loading is part of GALAB’s services. This also includes extensive documentation through photos and sampling. This ensures that everything is as it should be when imported into the EU, so that your goods reach the market and the end user as soon as possible – for your own benefit.
