Q: What if the Tare mass appearing on containers is lacking or inaccurate due to wear & tear, etc.? What remedy is available?

A: This is an International issue.

The tare mass of every container is marked on the exterior of the container at the time of manufacture. Shippers should solely rely on the tare mass value marked on the container. Where it is missing, or believed or established to be inaccurate, the container operator should be contacted to take appropriate remedial action.
