According to new SOLAS amendments the shipper of a packed container must verify and provide the containers Verified Gross Mass (VGM) to the ocean carrier or port terminal representative prior to it being loaded onto a ship.

If VGM of the container is not informed in time, according to SOLAS rules the container is not allowed to be loaded.

VGM is needed already for those shipments where the container will be shipped out of Finland during June but the transshipment in some European HUB port to the connecting ocean vessel will take place after 30.6.

Upon a request Hacklin can also offer a weighing service in Mäntyluoto. The used weighing devices will be type-approved and the service will be chargeable.   

The containers will be scaled upon a request of the shipper or shippers representative on containers arrival to the loading port.  

If there is no VGM informed latest on containers arrival to the loading port and neither a request of a weighing service is presented for Hacklin, the container will be taken to a separate waiting area for further instructions as it’s not allowed to be loaded onboard.  

The costs of these extra handlings will be charged from the shipper or their representative.

After weighing Hacklin will send the VGM –info to the party that ordered the service. The shipper will be responsible for providing the VGM to the captain of the ship or their representatives.

Hacklin Terminal Advice –sheet will be modified so that the weighing service in Mäntyluoto can be ordered by marking the request there.
