Dear Valued Customers,

Firstly, we would like to express our sincere thanks for your valuable support to Ecu Worldwide.

We, SOUTHERN INTERNATIONAL COMPANY, wish to notice you a new convention called SOLAS (Safety of life at sea)

which will take effect on July 1, 2016. The new SOLAS requires the shipper named on ocean carrier’s bill of

lading has to provide a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) for their shipment .

Please see the below guidelines for your good arrangement:

1. VGM requirement & rules

VGM is requested to declare for all packed export shipments or export containers. No VGM, No loading: to

comply with the IMO regulation, Ecu Worldwide will not load shipments or containers without VGM


2. VGM submission channel:

FCL: Shipper submit original VGM Form with stamp and signature for each container to port authority directly

and send Ecu Worldwide copy of VGM Form by email.

cargo must to deliver 12 hours compared with CFS closing time.

For LCL cargoes, here is the process for your cargoes delivery

1/ Shipper have to deliver cargo and submit Original VGM Formbefore closing time showing booking

confirmation. We will hold cargo automatically until next vessel If cargo deliver after closing time.

2/ Original VGM Form have to submit together cargo at gate in time. No VGM No Load. We will support to

receive cargo and weigh cargo if shipper have no VGM Form but they don’t take responsibility to catch up CFS

closing time and load cargo as planned. Shipper must inform us about no VGM of this shipment in advance.

3/ After collecting all of VGM Form of all shipments, We will submit our VGM Form to warehouse and proceed

to stuff cargo into container. Then we can require port authority to weigh our container to find out accurate

VGM. If the container weigh is exceed 5% of tolerance of VGM submitted previous, We proceed to get back

container and re-weigh individual shipments to find out which shipments submit VGM wrong. All charges/fee

will be shipper’s account declare wrong VGM.
