Early Adopter: CertiWeight
Since July 2016, it’s a legal obligation that every container has a Verified Gross Mass (VGM). CertiWeight has two terminals where we weigh containers, one on the Left bank and one on the Right bank of the Port of Antwerp. They provide the Verified Gross Mass on their cloud platform, where the users – mainly carriers and forwarders – can buy and download the VGM-certificate. Now they collaborate with NxtPort on the VGM API to make this data available digitally. Frank Van Reybroeck, Managing Director at CertiWeight, explains why they made this decision.
