Small change, big impact: SOLAS container weight verification – The impact on port terminals

Part 3 of 3 – Port Terminals

The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has amended the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention to require that a packed container’s gross weight be verified before the container can be loaded on board a ship

The new rule will come into force on 1 July 2016 and will apply globally. In a series of three articles,  Elizabeth Turnbull and Marcia Perucca look at how the industry is preparing for the change.

In the first article of the series they looked at the obligations placed on shippers. In the second article, they considered the implications for carriers. In this third and final article, they highlight the impact on port terminals.
