Cambodia - Verified Gross Mass (VGM) New Cut-Off Time, effective date from 16TH MARCH, 2020

11 March 2020

Continuing our communication about the SOLAS Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Requirement, we’d like to announce you the new VGM cut off time for our vessel/barge which departs from Sihanoukville & Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Therefore,

  • Feeder Service KO1 ETD Sihanoukville SUNDAY: VGM CY cut off will be maintained Saturday 11:59AM for digital submission or 10 hours before for manual submission.
  • Barge ETD Phnom Penh SUNDAY: New VGM CY cut off Saturday 10:00AM for digital submission or 10 hours before for manual submission
  • Barge ETD Phnom Penh WEDNESDAY: New VGM CY cut off Tuesday 17:00PM for digital submission or 10 hours before for manual submission

What is the consequence of not submitting a VGM before cut-off?

As already noted, no container will be loaded onboard a vessel WITHOUT a VGM. Delays on your cargo may impact the fluidity of your supply chain should a container not load its planned voyage due to an absence of a VGM. Additionally, potential demurrage and/or detention charges may apply when a container is sitting idle at the terminal a-waiting for VGM submission.

While your VGM cut-off may be noted on your booking confirmation, we will also launch a dedicated page on our website listing a detailed overview of VGM cut-off information.
