Container weighing charges

From 1 July 2016, all laden export containers are required to have a certified Verified Gross Mass (VGM) before being loaded onto a vessel.  This is to comply with the international SOLAS (safety of life at sea) regulations.  You can find out more about the service DP World Southampton is offering on our dedicated container weighing site http://containerweighing.dpworld.co.uk/ 

For our service applying to all laden export containers loaded on a vessel we will charge one of the following fees to recover our investments and additional (administrative) recurring costs:

Where the VGM is provided prior to arrival at the terminal

£1.00

VGM provision after box arrival but before 24 hour cut-off

£3.00

Where the terminal is requested to weigh the container and provide a TVGM with electronic signature

£17.50

 

The admin charge covers:
• Registration with CNS Compass and access to the new VGM functionality of CNS Compass.  
  You can  register with CNS Compass here
• Option to ‘claim’ your export containers and provide your VGM for each container direct to the terminal, if not done through the shipping line.
• Processing of all VGM data to the relevant parties including the shipping line
• Changes to our IT systems to prevent containers without VGM to be loaded on board.
• Regular checks and VGM reporting as requested by the MCA
• Even if the terminal did not provide a direct weighing service for shippers, we have to invest to ensure compliance with the new SOLAS regulations and this charge is intended to recover this investment and the recurring costs.

The above charges may be passed on with a surcharge by the Shipping Line or Freight Forwarder if not charged directly through the Port Community System CNS Compass. For these costs to be charged directly to shippers or their agents, the correct CNS identification needs to be provided for each laden export container, otherwise the charge will be made through the Shipping Line.

Please note: The terminal will be required to provide relevant information to the MCA for auditing and examination purposes, which is included in the above charges.

Pricing exceptions:

If a shipper VGM is expected, but not provided by the vessel cut-off time (24 hrs before vessel arrival) or prior to arrival of the container, the charge will be:

£3 (VGM after gate) + £17.50

If our determined weight differs from the provided VGM, we will be using the following criteria: 

  • For containers with a Shipper VGM under 18,000 kgs we will only apply our charges if our determined weight differs by more than 900 kgs
  • For containers with a Shipper VGM over 18,000 kgs we will only apply our charges if our determined weight differs by more than 5%

 

For Out of Tolerance boxes the TVGM will be used and the following charge applies:

For boxes with a weight outside the above tolerances the Terminal VGM will be used and the following charges apply:

£1 (VGM before gate) or £3 (VGM after gate) + £17.50 + £10 (mis-declaration fee)

If a shipper requests a re-weigh after we have provided a Terminal VGM and the new weight is  still outside the tolerance, the charge will be:

£1 (VGM before gate) or £3 (VGM after gate) + £17.50 + £10 (mis-declaration fee) +£50 (re-weigh fee)


Please note: The terminal will be required to provide relevant information to the MCA for auditing and examination purposes, which is included in the above charges.

Our prices and public tariffs are subject to annual RPI changes.
