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.

  • Booking or Bill of Lading (BL) number
  • Container number
  • VGM + weight measurement unit (Kgs.)
  • Responsible Party Name
  • Digital signature of the authorized signatory in all CAPITAL LETTERS.

How can I submit my VGM instructions?

Guidelines for submitting your VGM instructions

  • MSC prefers to receive a Shipper-Verified Gross Mass (VGM) before cargo is delivered. This helps to avoid any unexpected weighing charges being levied against the cargo, which will be billed to the Shipper of Record.
  • SOLAS VGM must be submitted latest 48 hrs  prior to vessel ETA/ETB Mombasa (Cut off time indicated in our daily schedule dispatch).
