COSCO Container Lines (COSCON) has extended relationship with INTTRA, the ocean shipping electronic marketplace by joining its eVGM network that conveys container weight to all it may concern.
The UN's International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Verified Gross Mass (VGM) amendment requires every container to have a VGM - or certified weight - to be loaded aboard ship.
"COSCON is market-oriented and strives to ensure client satisfaction. As a company, we will continue to comply with the latest international standards and methods to improve our service quality," said COSCON.
Said INTTRA vice president John Vitkus: "INTTRA is pleased to expand its excellent relationship with COSCON by welcoming the company to the INTTRA eVGM network."
