From 15 June 2016, shippers must verify container weights using certified weighing equipment and communicate a "Verified Gross Mass" or "VGM" to the shipping line. Without a VGM, the container cannot be landed on the vessel. Maritime NZ Rule 24B.4.4(a).
There are two approved methods for achieving the VGM:
1. Weigh the full container
2. Calculate the weight of the full container by adding together the weight of ALL the components and then adding dunnage, pallets or packing materials.
