Weighing your containers at Gosselin Logistics

On July 1st 2016 an amended container weight verification regulation will be introduced globally and will apply to all exporting countries. This new regulation was outlined by the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) under the request of The International Maritime Organization (IMO).

Therefore Gosselin Logistics’ facilities will be equipped with calibrated and certified scales to accommodate for the need of weighing containers early July. We encourage you to identify in advance how your cargo will be weighed.

We are also working with other service providers in the Port of Antwerp to weigh full containers. Due to the limited number of companies providing this service, some delays may be expected at the weighing stations. We suggest to book in advance.

 

Practical information about Verified Gross Mass (VGM)
We will accept the VGM in writing from the shipper either by using the VGM form or the shippers’ own form. Transmission of the data can be done by mail or fax to our operational export departments. Gosselin Logistics has adapted its IT system to transmit the information by EDI to the different carriers.

For more information please contact your usual local contact person within the company.
