APM Terminals to Provide Container Weighing Services at 35 Locations

VGM Generation services will be offered to enable supply chain partners to comply with new IMO SOLAS regulations

The Hague, Netherlands - With just 50 days until SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM) comes into force APM Terminals is taking the lead to ensure a smooth transition into the new regulatory environment facing over 120 million containers entering the international supply chain. Under international law from 1st July, 2016 shippers are required to provide a VGM for every container before it can be loaded with the shipping line.

In 2014, the International Maritime organization (IMO), the agency of the United Nations responsible for regulating international seaborne trade, approved amendments to the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS) which as of 1st July 2016 will require verification and documentation of loaded containers (Verified Gross Mass, or “VGM”) before they can beloaded onto vessels. This can be accomplished by either weighing the loaded container with calibrated and certified equipment, or weighing the cargo prior to loading and adding it to the tare weight of the empty container. The purpose of the VGM regulations is to assure safety of the vessel, as well as dockworkers and other cargo handlers by preventing overweight or otherwise misrepresented containers from jeopardizing shipments or container movements.

“Our focus is on constantly improving operations for the supply chain,” stated APM Terminals Head of Global Operations, Jack Craig; who added “it is crucial that these regulations are met in a way which does not create congestion bottlenecks for allstakeholders”.

APM Terminals teams are in dialogue with local regulatory authorities who are providing increasing clarity on national rules governing how to ensure compliance. Operational procedures and processes are being reviewed to ensure VGM Process Compliance throughout the APM Terminals Global Terminal Network. APM Terminals is planning to provide VGM Data Management capabilities in most facilities through accepting EDI transmissions of VGM information into terminal operating systems from the shipping lines prior to vessel load planning.

Export containers which are received at APM Terminal facilities with a valid VGM will be accepted as per current local operational procedures. Those export containers which arrive at APM Terminal facilities without a valid VGM will be generally accepted, but as they are ineligible to load on a vessel, may be segregated and subject to additional re-handling and
storage requirements.

Initially, APM Terminals will provide VGM Generation Services to supply chain partners at 35 locations globally.These locations are:

Aarhus, Denmark  Fos, France  Pecem, Brazil
Abidjan, Ivory Coast Gothenburg, Sweden  Petrolesport, Russia
Aqaba, Jordan Mumbai, India Pointe-Noire, Congo
