The International Maritime Organization (IMO) regulation under the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS) requires shippers to provide a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) for every packed container as a condition for vessel loading. These new laws are now in effect i.e. it is mandatory to have a VGM for all PRA’s.
Our SOLAS VGM software allows data to be collected earlier in the supply chain, with any party in the supply chain able to view the data that has been created between parties in the ecosystem.
The mobile app is suited to load points, weigh bridges and drivers.
The web application is suitable for office-based staff monitoring the loading of the containers and creation of shipping documents based on details surrounding the container.
The shipping lines booking number is the unique reference along with the container, which links parties together. Shippers allow access to their supply chain via authorisation to parties within the supply chain through the application.
Weighbridge tickets along with any other paperwork can be uploaded at this point to the cloud, via Android or Apple operating systems. This allows a clear audit trail of the VGM and final sign off by the shipper to the shipping line.
