Container Weight FAQ
Q: I understand the VGM must be documented on a shipping document. Is documenting the VGM and signature on the Commercial Invoice and/or Packing List sufficient?
A: The signed ‘shipping document’ evidencing the VGM must be a document (which can be electronic) that is acceptable to the maritime carrier and complies with any national regulatory requirements. It is strongly recommended that you contact the relevant maritime carrier to determine what would be acceptable. There is no international template for the shipping document to be used for communicating the VGM.
