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.

Developed by MBIS, the MBIS VGM – Weighbridge is a software application that integrates with the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure systems. Our custom solution enables the VGM certificate of authority to be created on the SAP system and to be transmitted to the ministry.

The functions of MBIS VGM - Weighbridge solution are as follows:

  • Query of the company's certificate of authority and weighbridges
  • Transmitting the VGM documents and informing the ministry regarding the weight
  • Port Query
  • Query of VGM Documents transmitted to the ministry system
