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.
What do I need to include in my VGM instructions?
You must include the following on all VGM instructions:
· Booking or Bill of Lading (BL) number
· Container number
· VGM + weight measurement unit (lbs. or kgs.)
· Responsible Party Name
· Digital signature of the authorised signatory in all CAPITAL LETTERS.

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.
