What is VGM?
Verified Gross Mass or VGM refers to the exact, verified weight of a packed container. For safety reasons, vessel operators can only load a container if its weight has been verified.
In line with SOLAS (Safety of Lives at Sea) regulations, all marine terminals in Guatemala are now allowed to use their certified scales to record Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of shipments.
