In logistics, nowadays Verified Gross Mass (VGM) has become an important requirement for shipment.

What is the meaning of VGM?

VGM stands for Verified Gross Mass (VGM) and this is often used in the logistics and maritime industry. It refers to the weight of a 20ft or 40ft container, and it has been verified by a third party or by the supplier.

The VGM can be calculated as follows: the Total Weight of Cargo, Loading Aids, Dunnage, and Tare of Container to become effective July 1st, 2016.

Nowadays VGM has become a global requirement. According to this new amendment which became effective on the 1st of July 2016 and that was brought into force by IMO and introduced in SOLAS (Safety Of Life At Sea) regulation VI/2, no container is allowed to be loaded onboard the ship unless its Verified Gross Mass has been declared by the shipper to the shipboard personnel and/or to port representatives. 

A form that states the legitimate VGM and that is accepted by the shipping line is called a "Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Shipping Declaration".
