The introduction of verified gross mass (VGM) requirements is fast approaching. Under the new regulations, all shippers must have their containers either on the port or fully pre-advised with VGM information through the Napier Port Community Access Portal at the time the loadlist is submitted.
From Monday 20 June 2016, Napier Port will no longer pre-advise containers that are on a shipping line loadlist.
As part of the list of discrepancies, Napier Port will identify containers that are not yet pre-advised with VGM. If the shipper has not fully pre-advised these containers prior to the agreed cut-off, they will not be loaded.
Should you have any questions relating to VGM processes and rules, please contactVGMenquiry@napierport.co.nz.
