SOLVO Unveils New SOLAS-Compliant VGM Solution

1 July 2016

Starting from July 1, 2016, loaded containers intended for sea voyage must be accompanied with a prepared load shipping VGM (verified gross mass) certificate. If no such certificate exists, this container cannot be loaded onto the vessel for shipment. Enter Solvo.VGM, a new module used for automatic checking of containers with accounting of SOLAS requirements prior to shipping. VGM control is performed in accordance with the new IMO requirements updated at the international SOLAS convention.
