DP World Australia boasts of 100% VGM accuracy
DP World Australia claims it has achieved 100% verified gross mass (VGM) of all containers travelling through its Australia ports following changes to Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) legislation, which came into effect on July 1.
The changes mean that every export container leaving Australia through DP World’s terminals meets the requirements of SOLAS, giving full visibility of cargo mass to customers’ vessels.
The achievement is the result of months of planning and testing, said Max Kruse, chief operating officer at DP World Australia.
DP World Australia jointly developed additional mandatory fields to the Pre-Receival Advice (PRA) process, which details a description of a container prepared by and exporter, forwarder, packer or trucking company, with freight and logistics IT solutions company 1-STOP, to ensure information being captured from the shipper is accurate and supports the IMO’s requirements.
“DP World globally welcomes the new SOLAS regulation, which assists in promoting safety across our terminals for our employees, customers and communities,” said Mr Kruse.
“Every employee at DP World Australia works with a commitment to safety at all times. Our 100% compliance rate on the weekend is a credit to our people, 1-STOP and our customers.”
