SOLAS VGM rule takes effect on July 1

Jade Logistics - June 28, 2016

We are just days away from the SOLAS VGM regulation coming into effect on 01 July. While there has been some discussion about how strictly the regulation will be enforced there has also been some misunderstanding that the regulation has been delayed by three months, but this is not the case. The regulation will take effect from this date, and it is a requirement to obtain a VGM for a packed container.

At Jade we are well prepared. Our Terminal Operating System (TOS), Master Terminal™, can record a container’s VGM using in-machine technology or weighbridges.

If you would like to find out more about Jade’s approach to VGM, read the Master Terminal container weighing fact sheet, our article Worth the weight? or contact us.
