Overweight containers have been an issue for years, so in order to make vessel stowage planning more efficient and safer, SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) rules requiring a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of containers prior to the containers being loaded onto ships have
been issued. These requirements protect the terminal operator employees as well as the vessel and its cargo and go into effect
Ultimately, it is the Shipper’s (party listed as the shipper in the bill of lading or sea waybill) responsibility to provide the VGM to the carrier prior to the container being loaded onto the ship. All countries that are members of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will be required to adopt these VGM rules; while enforcement will be at the local/state level.
Shippers should be ready to comply with these regulations in June 2016. In order to comply, precision weighing solutions will be required to verify VGM in one of the following ways:
Method 1: Weigh the container completely packed
Method 2: Weigh each package/item being loaded into the container and add the tare weight of the container
Method 1 Solution: PT300™ Wheel Load Scales
