Walker Ready to Help with the New SOLAS Regulation requiring VGM Certification
SOLAS Compliance Made Simple!
What is it?
The IMO (International Maritime Organization), amended Chapter VI of the SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) Convention as of July 2016 to require mandatory verification of the gross mass of containers.
How Does it Work?
VGM (Verified Gross Mass) must be provided prior to ship loading, by the shipper; carriers will not board containers for which there is no VGM
