What is the VGM?
From the 1st July, 2016, the SOLAS amendment requiring mandatory verification of the gross weight of packed containers becomes enforced.
All export containers leaving Australia must have the Verified Gross Weight (known as the Verified Gross Mass or VGM) declared to the terminal representative. And if there is no VGM, the terminal must not load the container.
