CTS has SOLAS compliant, calibrated, scales fitted to 3 of the forklifts to meet the new SOLAS VGM requirements which come into effect July 1, 2016.
The large forklift is able to weigh lighter containers with motor vehicles and personal effect inside. It will also weight all of the heavier cargo, which are delivered individually for CTS to containerise on site. The forklift scale is fitted with a printer, providing a documented trail for containers and cargo weighed with this equipment.
CTS‘s freight forwarding software for communicating with shipping terminals has been updated to meet the requirements of the new SOLAS regulations and testing has been done to ensure operational continuation.
New Shippers‘ Letters of Instruction (SLI's) and Container Weight Declarations (CWD's) are available.
Please contact your local CTS office for copies of these, or for further assistance if you need.LIST ALL NEWS ARTICLES
