Electronic shipping platform INTTRA has secured a prized new customer for its eVGM service, as top container operator Cosco Container Lines (COSCON) signed on recently.
The top Asian line has adopted INTTRA’s eVGM Service to facilitate compliance by COSCON and its customers with a recently implemented global container weight requirement. The IMO’s Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Verified Gross Mass (VGM) amendment requires every container to have a VGM – or certified weight – in order to be loaded onto a ship.
