Q: Does Method 2 require the shipper weighing the packages, also to mark the gross mass on each package, which in our case would the pallet mass?

A: There is no obligation for a shipper, using Method 2, to indicate the gross mass of each package/pallet being packed into the container. It is the total VGM of the container with all its contents and including the container tare weight that must be obtained and provided to the maritime carrier and the terminal operator.
