Shanghai Port Intelligent VGM system is online! The error of the two cabinets has been checked by 8 tons! Maximum fine of $8,000
The Shanghai Port Marine Container Weight Verification (Verified Gross Mass, referred to as VGM) intelligent monitoring system developed by Shanghai Maritime Safety Administration and SIPG was officially launched at Yangshan Deepwater Port Shengdong International Container Terminal, realizing the weight of all export containers at Shengdong Terminal The inspection will be gradually promoted in Shanghai Port.
In recent years, due to cargo loading, especially due to overweight containers and inaccurate weight declarations, accidents such as container falling, ship body breaking and sinking, and wharf cranes breaking and collapse have occurred from time to time, causing immeasurable damage to ports, ships, personnel, and cargo. loss. As one of the world's largest container ports, Shanghai Port has an annual container throughput of more than 40 million TEUs for many years. With the continuous increase in throughput, the pressure on safety is also increasing; the VGM intelligent supervision system uses intelligent means to verify the weight of shipping containers, and realizes automatic comparison of the weight of export containers and verification of risk control.
Industry insiders reported that they were fined for overweight cabinets: freight forwarders were fined 8,500 for overweight one ton!
VGM intelligent identification process
The container passes the terminal weighing gate, and the system records the actual weight of the container truck passing the terminal weighing gate
The system automatically grabs the weight on the container weight verification statement submitted by the cargo agent
The system automatically grabs the weight on the inbound packing list, and performs automatic comparison based on the massive container type, size, and container truck basic data entered into the system in the early stage
If the actual weight exceeds the standard seriously, carry out deployment control.
After receiving the container deployment control instruction, the terminal staff will guide the relevant container trucks to the designated maritime verification point to conduct on-site container weight review
The weight of the review will be transmitted to the backstage of law enforcement personnel as soon as possible, so that the law enforcement personnel can issue the next instruction.
