Latest info on SOLAS / VGM

Dear Customer,

Please find here SOLAS / VGM a general SOLAS advisory, effective July 1st 2016.

Key highlights:

  • ‘VGM weight’ must be stated when placing the booking. We do accept estimated ‘VGM weight’ when placing the booking, which can be altered before VGM cut-off in order to be shipped as planned.
  • ‘VGM weight’ and verified consignment weight are both required in order to ship as planned.
  • We will be ready for EDI submission of ‘VGM weight’.
  • Due to increased operational costs, a ‘VGM fee’ will be implemented in due time.

In case of any further questions, please do no hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards,

BG Freight Line B.V.
