Introduction of Weight Discrepancy Fee with effect from 1st June 2020
Introduction of Weight Discrepancy Fee
In order to implement strict compliance to have the correct VGM declaration and avoid any associated risk to lives and equipment due to mis-declaration of weight we have taken an initiative towards Safety due to variance between weight provided to us. We will be introducing weight discrepancy fees of USD 100 per BL with effect from 1st June 2020.
With effective 01-June-2020, we will verify & compare the declared weight. The 3 checks we will perform are mentioned below:
- Discrepancy between VGM and weight in shipping instruction is +/- 5000 kgs.
- Declared VGM exceeds allowable payload as per CSC Plate (excluding SOC)
- Declared VGM is less than tare weight of the container. Any failures to these checks will result in a weight discrepancy fee of USD 100 per bill of lading. We encourage you to declare the correct weight via your preferred channels. Thank you for your continued support.
