On July 1 International Maritime Organization regulations regarding the certification of container weights go into effect. American Shipper is gathering feedback on how prepared the container shipping industry is for the so-called verified gross mass (VGM) requirements of the Safety of Life at Sea Act (SOLAS). Please take this 12-question survey to help us better understand how these regulations might impact you. Even if you are unsure of how to answer a question, it is better to answer a question than to leave it blank. The survey should take less than 5 minutes.
