MSC will use INTTRA Software for Container Weight Verification

Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC) is set to use INTTRA’s eVGM software to receive weight verification transitions from shippers, which is set to go into effect July 1st this year under the International Maritime Organization’s Safety of Life at Sea amendment.

SOLAS is designed to reduce safety hazards from overloaded containers. Containers will not be allowed onto a vessel until the shipper or its designee provides the carrier with the box’s verified weight. INNTRA has designed software that makes the transmission of these documents easier for all parties involved. They have designed two separate versions of this software for both carriers and shippers. MSC said it will use the software to simplify customers’ submission of verified weight.

Fabio Catassi, Chief Technology Officer of MSC said, “INTTRA’s eVGM tool will help us to continue to provide superior customer service and make it as easy as possible for our clients to submit VGMs digitally. We believe this tool will help minimize potential disruption to our customers’ shipments and additional costs associated with terminal storage or transportation.”

“We are happy to partner with MSC in globally adopting INTTRA’s eVGM for Carriers platform, and we appreciate that they are adding their expertise to the eVGM Initiative,” said INTTRA CEO John Fay. “MSC is taking a strategic step to embrace our eVGM solution on a large scale and is an early leader in using technology to resolve the changes that SOLAS VGM has created for the industry. “

MSC has also joined INTTRA’s eVGM Initiative, a non-commercial group of more than a dozen ocean carriers, freight forwarders, and terminals working to establish common technology and business process standards for digital transmission of container weights.
