Container Weighing

VGM Container Weighing

Get an instant VGM certificate with our fast and convenient mobile container weighing service.

On 1 July 2016, new SOLAS weighing requirements for shipping containers came into effect. All containers for export from New Zealand must now have a verified container weight (Verified Gross Mass or VGM) before they can be loaded on a ship.

Container weighing is now easier than ever

Our mobile container weighing service comes to you for a fast, efficient and convenient way to meet your VGM obligations. Using portable container scales, we weigh your container on site – anytime, anywhere – and immediately email your VGM certificate to you. The whole container weighing process could take less than five minutes, so your cargo can be on its way without delay.
