News and Notes
The yard is currently busy. Moderate volume is expected throughout the day.
The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has made a change to the SOLAS regulation that requires each container to have a verified gross mass (VGM) prior to being loaded to a vessel. This change is effective July 1, 2016. GCT Bayonne and GCT New York are working with all of our customers to establish EDI connectivity to allow for the electronic transfer of the VGM for each export container from the Shipping Line to the Terminal. GCT Bayonne and GCT New York are capable of receiving this data set via the VERMAS EDI protocol.
For GCT Bayonne and GCT New York, containers will be permitted to enter the terminal without a VGM, however it will be dependent on the container shipping Line to ensure that all containers scheduled to load a vessel for export have the required VGM prior to the stated cutoff.
The Line must identify all export containers that do not have the required VGM to the terminal by the stated cutoff. Cutoff for VGM submit submission, unless stated otherwwise, will be 1200 on the day of the cargo cutoff for both GCT Bayonne and GCT New York.
Any containers that are cut from the intended vessel as a result of not having the VGM submitted prior to the VGM cutoff will be placed on hold. Any questions as to whether there are charges associated with the holds should be directed to the ocean carrier.
