SOLAS VGM information for Zimbabwe

What is VGM?
Verified gross mass (or VGM) refers to the exact, verified weight of a packed container. For safety reasons, vessel operators can only load a container if its weight has been verified.
 
In line with Safety of Lives at Sea (SOLAS) regulations, all marine terminals are now allowed to use their certified scales to record shipment VGM in case of any doubt regarding customer submissions. 
 
What to include in VGM instructions
You must include the following on all VGM instructions: 

  • Booking or Bill of Lading (BL) number 
  • Container number 
  • VGM and weight measurement unit (lbs or kgs) 
  • Name of responsible party 
  • Digital signature of the authorised signatory in CAPITAL LETTERS.

How to submit VGM instructions

Guidelines for submitting your VGM instructions

  •  MSC prefers to receive a Shipper-Verified Gross Mass (VGM) 24 HOURS before vessel arrival in port Beira or Durban. This helps to avoid any unexpected weighing charges being levied against Zimbabwean cargo by both Ports of Loading, which will be billed to the Shipper of Record. This also helps to avoid cargo being declined at load port.
  • Currently all cargoes loading from both ports of loading servicing Zimbabwe abide by the SOLAS policy. 
  • All rail shipments must have the VGM submitted within 24 hours of the container gating in at the origin rail ramp, to avoid any extra fees levied by the terminal for weighing services.

Pesaje de contenedores (VGM)
Todas las oficinas locales del MSC disponen de básculas certificadas para registrar y verificar el peso de los contenedores (masa bruta verificada o VGM) de acuerdo con la normativa de Seguridad de la Vida Humana en el Mar (SOLAS). Las instrucciones VGM son obligatorias para todos los envíos por razones de seguridad. Los operadores de los buques solo pueden cargar contenedores para los que se haya verificado su peso. Póngase en contacto con su equipo local de MSC para obtener más información y asistencia.
