Refresher of Weight discrepancy fee Policy - Philippines Update
We want to re-emphasize regarding Maersk weight discrepancy fee policy.
As per our advisory last May 6 2020, we will be introducing weight discrepancy fees of USD 100 per BL with effect from 1st June 2020.
We still found non-compliance container and following up with customer. We decide to postpone the implementation to 15th June 2020. Starting from that day, we will start to bill weight discrepancy fees of USD 100 per B/L.
We will verify & compare the declared weight.
The 3 Check we will perform are
- Discrepancy between VGM and weight in shipping instruction (cargo weight+ tare weight) is +/- 5000 kgs.
- Declared VGM exceeds allowable payload as per CSC Plate (excluding SOC)
- Declared VGM is less than Tare Weight of the container.
Any failures to these checks will result in a Weight discrepancy fee of USD 100 per bill of lading.
We encourage you to declare correct cargo weight and VGM on shipping instruction via your preferred channel and submit the shipping instruction on timely manner. Please do not stuff your cargo exceeding maximum container payload.
Should you have any questions or require any assistance regarding this new regulation, please do not hesitate to contact your local Maersk representative.
