Trade Tech, Advent Team Up to Aid Compliance With New Rules on Container Weighing

Trade Tech has partnered with Advent Intermodal Solutions to help truckers meet delivery schedules in light of the new container-weighing rules issued by the International Convention on the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS).

Trade Tech’s e-shipping portal, known as Syrinx, is joining with Advent’s port-community system, eModal, to ensure that truckers can deliver containers to terminals with expedience. The goal, said the companies, is to eliminate wait times and ensure reject-free processing at the terminal gates. The SOLAS rule requires that shippers submit to ocean carriers the verified gross mass (VGM) of their containers prior to the boxes being loading aboard vessels. The joint offering from Trade Tech and Advent allows truckers to confirm the VGM transmission, or even trigger the transmission, in cases where the cargo needs to be weighed by a third-party scale before attempting to schedule a delivery appointment.
