Government approval status

• Beirut port authorities will specify at least two weigh bridges in the port for weighing containers.
• They will weigh the truck with the full export container, than weigh the empty truck or vice versa.
• Containers can be accepted to be gated in the port without VGM, but will not be loaded on the vessel.
• No VGM = No loading
