Verified Gross Mass (VGM) w.e.f. 1.7.2016

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has amended the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) convention to require, as a condition for loading a packed container onto a ship for export, that the container has a verified weight to ensure correct stowage and stacking as well as to avoid collapse of container stack overboard. This is an important safety measure, which is aimed at saving lives, to prevent cargo damage, injury and destruction of property.
