Container weighing – July 2016

 

The International Maritime Organization have implemented a ruling that requires all shippers to ensure that accurate weights are declared to authorities.

This is ruling will start 1st July 2016 and Anglia strongly suggests that all shippers establish procedures for weighing their cargo prior to export to prevent delays, additional charges and possible fines and penalties.

If you are unable to weigh your cargo, please speak to your local Anglia office for advice prior to export.
