Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS)

overloadsThis is a new requirement where shippers are now legally required to declare the weight of shipping containers before they are booked onto a ship. The idea is to avoid the situations, shown left, which occur when a container ship is overloaded.

The legislation is about ‘safety of life at sea’ and aims to prevent overloading and uneven loading of ships to prevent accidents.

The new SOLAS requirements have meant shippers, packers and intermodal logistics companies are looking for simple ways to integrate container weight information into their current processes. You can read more about SOLAS container weighing regulations here.

At Straightpoint we believe the simplest and fastest way to capture this weight information is when the container is lifted. 

This can be done using a loadlink or loadshackle used in conjunction with our datalogging software for reporting.
