Notice of Late VGM Fee

Dear Valued Customers,

In accordance with the Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS) Convention, shippers are required to provide a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) declaration to the carrier and / or the terminal by VGM cut off time. Failure to provide the information on time may not allow for the smooth loading of the container.

Late submission of the VGM declaration generates additional work and cost to meet the necessary deadline and ensure that the container is loaded as intended. In order to contain such cases, we will implement a Late VGM Submission Fee as follows:

Charge: Late VGM Submission Fee
Amount: RMB 450 per B/L
Effective Date: 1 January 2020 (Vessel Departure Time at Port of Loading)
Applicability: Only for customers providing the VGM Data after the published VGM Cut-Off time

Should you have any questions related to this advisory, please feel free to contact our local branches and offices.

We sincerely thank you for your continuous support.
