Shippers: New SOLAS Requirements

Starting July 1st 2016, Shippers must provide a certificate with the VGM (verified gross mass) to the ocean carrier and the port terminal operator in advance of vessel loading. The Certification must be “signed”, meaning a specific person representing the shipper is named and identified as having verified the accuracy of the weight calculation on behalf of the shipper.
