Terminals in Ivory Coast
Abidjan

Abidjan Terminal is the primary gateway to the Côte d'Ivoire for containers. Excellent road connections also make it a major transit point for land-locked countries such as Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso.  

SOLAS VGM information for the Ivory Coast
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 SOLAS (Safety of Lives at Sea) regulations, all marine terminals in the Ivory Coast are now allowed to use their certified scales to record Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of shipments. Download our Ivory Coast VGM policy and terminal guidelines for more information.

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 (kgs.)
  • Responsible Party Name
  • Digital signature of the authorised signatory in all CAPITAL LETTERS.

How can I submit my VGM instructions?

  • myMSC (Free of Charge) 
  • EDI (via INTTRA; GT NEXUS; Cargo Smart)
  • Manually (via INTTRA; GT NEXUS; Cargo Smart)
  • Email: CIV-info@msc.com (note: the email will only be monitored for VGM declarations)

 
Guidelines for submitting your VGM instructions

  • MSC prefers to receive a Shipper-Verified Gross Mass (VGM) before cargo is delivered. 
  • Any Shipper of Record-signed VGM will override any VGM derived at or by the terminal.
  • For truck delivery, the ultimate deadline for VGM submission will be 12:00 noon local time on the day of the cargo cut-off. 
  • There are currently no US terminals with a “NO VGM – No GATE” 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. Late gates will only be considered for approval when a VGM is submitted by the Shipper of Record before 12:00 noon, local time, on the day of the cargo cut-off. 

MSC admin fees and costs 

  • Manual VGM Submission Fee (applies to email, fax, and inclusion on standard shipping instructions): 25 USD per container. 
  • Late VGM Submission Fee: 25 USD per container. 
  • VGM Misdeclaration Fee: 300 USD per misdeclaration, per container.
