CertiWeight offers certified weighing (method 1)
There are two ways to weigh your export container to obtain a valid VGM
Method No. 1 (certified)
The container is weighed after stuffing and sealing. In other words, once it’s ready to be loaded onto the vessel. This can be done using a weighing bridge or a reach stacker supported by certified weighing technology.
The cargo, dunnage and container tare are weighed separately. The final weight is then calculated. In this case the responsible for the weighing needs to hold ISO and/or AEO certification.
There are two different prices for weighing and submitting the VGM to the ocean line:
STANDARD CONTAINER: €39
NON-STANDARD EQUIPMENT/CARGO: €156
