Reference Group for the Weighting of Containers in Sweden
The Swedish Transport Administration has set up a reference group for input on the implementation of the mandatory weighting of containers.
The Swedish Transport Administration has set up a reference group to get correct input from stakeholders before finalizing the work on the implementation of the regulation for weighting of containers in Sweden. Due to changes to the Safety of Life at Sea Convention (SOLAS), shippers will soon be required to provide the verified weight of their containers. This provision will enter into force on July 1, 2016. The Swedish Shippers Council is represented in the reference group. Additionally, the reference group also includes individual shippers such as IKEA.
