PSA to Weigh Containers at All Terminals

The PSA Group of Terminals has announced that all its terminal facilities will be in full compliance with the implementation of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) when it comes into effect on July 1, 2016.

This follows news that Global Ports was preparing for the container weighing legislation by completing preparations for information systems and processes.
Export containers arriving at PSA terminals with valid Verified Gross Mass (VGM) will be accepted in accordance with operational procedures which are in most cases familiar to our customers.

For those arriving without VGM, most PSA terminals will be ready to provide a weighing service to determine VGM upon request.
