Weighing on an Industry: Shipper, NVO and Carrier Perspectives on VGM

Eric Johnson, American Shipper 

New research from American Shipper has uncovered the extent to which shippers and NVOs expect upcoming container weight regulations to affect their supply chains.

The report includes responses from 521 shippers, forwarders, NVOs, and carriers collected in the first quarter of 2016. American Shipper has been chronicling the VGM issue for months, and this research represents the most concrete data around shipper, NVO, and carrier perspectives yet.

Highlights include:

  • How shippers and NVOs think containers will most likely be weighed
  • The best method to submit VGM data to carriers, according to shippers and NVOs
  • How import shippers will handle VGM compliance at origin
