Your ContainerWeight

 

Establishing the VGM weight of containers can be a daunting task. ContainerWeight has mapped the tare weights of shipping containers and is currently offering over 99% of the global fleet. Connect to the ContainerWeight webservice (API) to unburden your organization and make sure you comply with the SOLAS VGM legislation.

 
 
 

The IMO SOLAS regulation was introduced on 1 July 2016. Safety of personnel and prevention of marine pollution are important concerns for the maritime industry. Part of the regulation are the new requirements to verify the gross mass of a packed container. Knowing the accurate gross mass of a packed container is critical to ensure correct stowage and stacking and avoid collapse of container stacks or loss overboard. This is an important safety measure, which is aimed at saving lives and preventing injury and the destruction of property.

At ContainerWeight we have made it our personal mission to develop a reliable and complete database of tare weights and size/types of shipping containers used in global trade. Shippers who set up an API connection to the ContainerWeight database can calculate the VGM easily. Via our client portal shippers can also look up tare weights instantly in a personalized dashboard.
