CargoSmart Introduces Mobile App for SOLAS VGM Compliance

We are pleased to announce BoxSnap, a free app to easily collect and share container weight information through a smartphone to comply with the Safety of Life at Sea Convention’s Verified Gross Mass requirements (SOLAS VGM). The mobile app simplifies and expedites the process for shippers, truckers and cargo weighing parties to obtain VGM information and submit it to their ocean carriers to comply and minimize the risk of held cargo or penalties. Leveraging optical character recognition (OCR) technology, truckers and cargo weighing parties can take a photo of a container, check the captured container number and tare weight, and share it with the parties responsible for filing the VGM.

Nearly 500 people have downloaded BoxSnap since CargoSmart began testing the app in June. Naouri Group, a Jordan-based NVOCC with container weighing services in the Middle East and North Africa, adopted CargoSmart’s VGM solutions to comply with the new regulation. “We have tested the new mobile app and find it to be a useful extension to CargoSmart’s platform to facilitate the VGM submission process,” said Kareem Naouri, chief operations officer of Naouri.
