The updated SOLAS convention requires a shipper to provide a container Verified Gross Weight (VGM) using verified equipment according to the state. The VGM must be in the shipping documentation to the terminal operator, which is effective from 1 July 2016.
Haenni portable vehicle weighing scales are OIML Class 4 certified and they can be used to provide the shipper and the transporter an immediate solution to verify the gross mass (KGs) of ISO sea containers at the point of collection and delivery to the port. Axle and total weights are provided to avoid dangerous and illegal overloads.
The HAENNI scales are easily transported and are ready for use in minutes. They can be used as a semi-permanent installation at a container hub. Options for storing and printing weighing receipts are available when they are connected to a PC with the processing software EC 200.
