    logo11 Verified gross mass

    In the April 2016 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Verified gross mass". In the article, I discuss prior marine casualties in which significant disparities between the declared mass of shipping containers and their actual mass was a factor; the 2014 amendment to the SOLAS Convention requiring shippers to provide to the master (prior to loading) the verified gross mass of each container; and the currently unresolved process issues required for completion of this upcoming task.
