United Arab Shipping Company has chosen to use the eVGM service from INTTRA for container weight information in compliance with the verified-gross-mass amendment to the International Maritime Organization’s Safety of Life at Sea convention.


“We have always believed in providing our customers with solutions that suit their preference,” said Vijay Minocha, global head of customer service and e-commerce at UASC. “In our partnership with INTTRA on this SOLAS compliance initiative, we reiterate this commitment.”


The VGM amendment, under which a container cannot be loaded onto a ship unless its verified gross mass has been declared, comes into effect on July 1, 2016.


“We are delighted to extend our long-term partnership with UASC in e-commerce to VGM compliance,” said Inna Kuznetsova, president and chief operating officer of INTTRA. “Giving preference to digital submission of VGMs and providing UASC customers with an opportunity to standardize their submissions will create a foundation for excellent customer service.”
