SOLAS container weighing

From July 2016, an amendment to the SOLAS Convention will require every loaded export container ship to have its weight verified before it’s loaded on to a ship.

With all containers converging on ports to be loaded on ships, terminals have been suggested as the most logical point in the supply chain to weigh boxes. Port of Dublin has undertaken a lengthy consultation process with the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA) and its customers to develop a system that will help avoid potential export disruption for exporters. The Port of Dublin will have the ability to weigh all containers as part of an in-process weighing scheme, which will not impact on productivity.

Container shipping and logistics

At Port of Dublin, when it comes to containers, we tick all the right boxes for our customers. Of course we load, unload and store their goods in the safest, most efficient, most cost-effective way. But that’s only half the story. The other half involves booking systems, flexibility, repair, reliability, management and added value. Whatever the box…whatever the cargo.
