PSA Terminals SOLAS Ready

[ June 20, 2016   //   ]

The PSA Group of Terminals announces that all its terminal facilities will be in full
compliance with the implementation of the International Maritime Organization (IMO)
amendments to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) when it
comes into effect on July 1, 2016.

As a major and responsible member of the global container shipping community, PSA
terminals will provide solutions where possible in the local context to facilitate the smooth and
efficient implementation of the SOLAS amendments. Export containers arriving at PSA
terminals with valid Verified Gross Mass (VGM) will be accepted in accordance with
operational procedures which are in most cases familiar to our customers. For those arriving
without VGM, most PSA terminals will be ready to provide a weighing service to determine
VGM upon request.
