What is Solas VGM?
As of July 1, 2016 there is an international legislation in force concerning the SOLAS Convention (Safety Of Life At Sea). This includes the requirement to weigh an empty and full container in order to provide a Verified Gross Mass (VGM). Without this VGM, a shipping company will not authorize the loading of the container.
For these additional activities, separate costs will be charged.
