Exporters’ compliance to mandatory weighing policy grows

Manila port operators are seeing among exporters greater compliance to the policy on mandatory weighing of export containers.

The operators said less discrepancies were recorded between exporters’ declared verified gross mass (VGM) and the VGM obtained at the port more than a month since the policy was strictly implemented.

From July 30 to August 2, only 14% of the total export shipments at Manila South Harbor were imposed with shut out fees, after recording different VGM at the terminal from VGM declared in their pre-advice, according to Reginald Rivera, marketing manager of port operator Asian Terminals Inc. (ATI).
