Navis to Provides Weight-Verification Fields for SOLAS Mandates

NAVIS PROVIDES WEIGHT-VERIFICATION FIELDS FOR SOLAS MANDATES IN EXPRESS AND N4 TERMINAL OPERATING SYSTEM

Oakland, CA— June 23, 2016—Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, and provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading terminal operators, today announced the availability of weight verification fields within the company’s terminal operations system (TOS) solutions. The new functions are included in both the EXPRESS and N4 TOS, and provide an easy, user-friendly means for shippers and terminal operators to capture container weights prior to loading in order to assure compliance with the new SOLAS VGM requirements, which take effect on July 1, 2016.

The following new fields may be found in both EXPRESS and N4 TOS:

•    VGM Weight – This field stores the Verified Gross Mass
•    VGM Verifier – This text field captures the party/entity authorizing the VGM Weight (ex. “Scale weight facility or person”)
•    Gross Weight Source – This field represents the source that generated the Gross Weight of the unit (ex. “overwritten by VGM”)

“As we close in on the SOLAS VGM compliance deadline, our team has worked diligently to ensure that our customers have a seamless transition to the new container weighing practices,” said Scott Holland, GM Terminal Operating Systems for Navis.  “Navis is focused on ensuring that our customers do not face non-compliance consequences due to an inability to properly capture container weights.”

The shipping industry is scrambling to meet the new SOLAS requirements, and the available assistance from outside their respective organizations has been scarce.  According to an NGO specializing in cargo-handling, less than fifteen percent of the 162 nations responsible for enforcing the SOLAS rules have issued guidelines implementation and compliance. As the deadline approaches and shippers and terminals seek assistance, Navis is actively working with customers around the world to equip their operations to meet SOLAS standards.
