Hamburg Süd to Utilize INTTRA eVGM Service for Upcoming New SOLAS Regulations
Danny Gill

Hamburg Süd has selected INTTRA’s eVGM software to aid in their compliance with the impending July 1st implementation of the International Maritime Organization’s Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Verified Gross Mass (VGM) amendment.

The INTTRA eVGM Service will be a channel for Hamburg Süd to receive VGM submissions from shippers to meet the requirement that all containers must have verified weights before being loaded onto a ship. Hamburg Süd was a founding member of INTTRA’s eVGM Initiative. Launched in December 2015, it brought together carriers, freight forwarders, shippers, terminals, ports, regulatory agencies and industry experts to foster dialogue and readiness within the ocean shipping community and minimize disruption across the industry.

“Hamburg Süd played an integral role in championing a ‘Digital First’ approach to SOLAS VGM compliance and common standards for the industry,” said Inna Kuznetsova, INTTRA’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Those standards are embedded in the INTTRA eVGM Service, providing the foundation for comprehensive and flexible service.” “INTTRA eVGM Service allows an easy integration for carriers, helping to minimize disruption,” said Paul Wenger, Global Head of Customer Order Management at Hamburg Süd.
