Shanghai's Yangshan port installs export box weigh-ins
Date:2020-11-26 Readers:
THE launch ceremony of the Verified Gross Mass system (VGM) was held at the Port of Yangshan, reports Shanghai Daily.

The system was put into use to record the weight of all export containers and to ensure safety on ships. It was developed by the city's maritime bureau and Shanghai International Port Group and will be first applied to the Shengdong International Container Terminal.

Shanghai is one of the biggest container outlets globally with an animal throughput of 40 million TEU and 4 million TEU alone last month.

However, many accidents in recent memory have been attributed to overloading and false claims of container weight. This is why a new system like the VGM can improve the accuracy and efficiency of the port, said the port authority.
