SOLAS - Safety of Life at Sea
Compliance with Method 1
Weigh the packed container (tare weight & cargo weight combined).
Note: Reach stacker with load cells.
Prepacked Items delivered to Nefab
In the event the forwarder does not wish to pay for Nefab to re-weigh items prior to loading or use the reach stacker to weigh the entire contents, Nefab will provide the forwarder the tare weight of the container and the dunnage materials. The forwarder will be responsible for certifying the weight.
Compliance with Method II
Weigh the cargo and other contents (dunnage) and add the weight of the container.
Note: Floor scales at Nefab
VGM Transmission to Steamship Line
Nefab will provide VGM to freight forwarder and the forwarder will submit the VGM directly.
Nefab will have an e-portal system in place to submit the VGM to all major steamship lines in early July in the event the forwarders do not have that capability.
