Requirements Regarding the Verified Gross Mass
February 18, 2016
Starting 1st July 2016, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) will enforce the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS) requirements regarding the verification of the gross mass of packed containers.
“A packed container will not be allowed to be loaded on board vessels to which the SOLAS Convention applies unless the Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of the container has been provided to the ship’s master or his representative and to the terminal or its representative sufficiently in advance to allow for the edition of the loading plan.”
The responsibility for obtaining and documenting the Verified Gross Mass of a packed container lies with the shipper.
The Verified Gross Mass, also known as the VGM, means the total gross mass of a packed container which can be obtained by one of the two methods described below:
Ø Method No. 1: Using calibrated and certified equipment, the shipper or a third party duly appointed by the shipper weighs the packed container at the end of the stuffing operation once the seal is affixed.
Ø Method No. 2: The shipper or a third party, by arrangement of the shipper, weighs all packages, cargo items, pallets, dunnage and other packing and securing material and adds the tare mass of the container. The total sum finally obtained is the weight to be provided. This method is subject to certification and approval by the competent authority of the State in which the packing and sealing of the container was completed.
Please also be reminded of this regulation: If the Verified Gross Mass is not provided, the container will not be loaded onto the ship.Posted by admin

Dear Valued Clients;
As you may be aware, shareholder meetings of China COSCO Holding Co. Ltd., the parent company of COSCON, and CSCL were held on February 1, 2016 to review a restructuring proposal (please refer to the announcement issued by COSCO and CSCL for details).
The fundamental purpose of the restructuring is to provide better products and services to our customers. After restructuring we will have larger capacity, more services to offer, broader business and better optimized route network. It also means that the new organisation will have more broad and in-depth opportunities to work with you.
In order to ensure smooth transition of the integration, the company hired intermediary agency in the past 3 months to plan thoughtfully in compliance with the law and regulations. There will be an official integration transitional period upon the closure of the deal, during which, we will continue to serve our customers through the original channels. We commit to smooth transition and will maintain best service quality and business continuity as much as possible.
Any changes and updates will be communicated upfront.
Any questions/inquiries regarding the integration, please contact your account manager or send an email and we will follow up with the person responsible and reply ASAP.
Thank you for your continued support, as always.Posted by admin
