Notice - SOLAS Regulation - VGM (Verified Gross Mass) - Effective 01 July 2016

Posted: 10/06/2016

As you may or may not be aware, effective 1st July 2016 is the Implementation of SOLAS / VGM regulations for all Export Containers. This basically means all containers are required to have a VGM declared by Shipper/Consolidator with Carriers whom containers are booked with.

PGL will be implementing this new requirement using both methods as per options give on FACT SHEET attached (for both LCL & FCL) and unfortunately this will incur additional fees which we will advise in the coming week or so.


We appreciate your understanding & assistance on this matter and if you have any further questions then kindly let us know.
