American Shipper SOLAS Container Weight

Dear Valued Reader,

On July 1 International Maritime Organization regulations regarding the certification of container weights go into effect. American Shipper is gathering feedback on how prepared the container shipping industry is for the so-called verified gross mass (VGM) requirements of the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS). Please take this 12-question (less than 5 minutes!) survey to help us better understand how these regulations might impact you.
