SOLAS Weight Verification Requirement Advisory

As it has been reported over the last several months, the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea)
Weight Verification Requirement, VGM (verified gross mass), goes into effect on July 1, 2016. This is an important safety requirement designed to reduce casualties associated with misdeclared container weights.
Euroconsol will implement the following processes and fees for all LCL and FCL export cargo to ensure compliance and supply chain integrity.
