What is the MBIS VGM – Weighbridge solution?

According to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) amendment that covers container weighing regulations, a packed container will no longer be allowed to be loaded on vessels unless its VGM (Verified Gross Mass) is provided by the shipper prior to the load list cut-off date.

This "Container Weight Certificate" regulation is adopted by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to increase maritime safety in container transport throughout the supply chain.
