New regulations being implemented for all export shipping companies

Posted by on Jun 13, 2016 in Industry News | 0 comments

As part of the Safety of Lives at Sea (SOLAS), the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has mandated that all containers specify a certified Verified Gross Mass (VGM) weight starting July 1st, 2016. The VGM consists of the weight of the cargo plus the tare weight of the container. If you are a shipper you and your company will now be responsible for providing the VGM to the ocean carrier prior to loading of the full container on a vessel. Why is this now being implemented? The initiative by the IMO is to prevent accidents from occurring as a result of overweight containers and improper vessel loading. Accurate weights will allow for better planning of how to best distribute weight on the ship. Protecting all vessel and terminal operators, as well as cargo, is paramount to the initiative. This requirement applies to ALL exports, not just recyclable commodities. While this is a global requirement, local conditions may impact reporting requirements. As a recycling company – all material which we ship either domestically or to a foreign country via an export vessel – is sold by weight. Each trailer or export container is weighed empty when it arrives at our site. This provides us with the “tare”, or empty weight. It is then loaded, and weighed...

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in News, Recycling | 0 comments

As anyone in the recycling industry knows – material prices are determined by only one basic factor, “supply & demand”. Market factors that can create demand can be a growth in production of finished product, (resulting in higher demand for recyclable feedstock) or even severe weather conditions affecting collection, transportation, and mill deliveries, which limit supply.
