the introduction of VGM in September 2016 some shippers have been using
Pre-advice at the Multi Cargo Wharves. There have been several benefits, from
operational efficiencies to data integrity.
Pre-advice ensures the container is gated in with the
correct information. Accurate information ensures the container gets to
the right place on the right ship, by enabling stevedores to stack efficiently
and load correctly.
For shipping lines this makes booking and
planning more efficient, for transport operators it means drivers spend less
time dealing with paperwork at the port and for shippers it provides confidence
their container will be loaded to the correct vessel and arrive at the required
wish to advise that from 15 March 2018 export containers at Multi
Cargo wharves will only be received with a Pre-advice.
Multi Cargo Road Office can enter container information if the shippers do not
have Pre-advice, however a Pre-advice Fee will apply. This service charge can
be found in our tariff here
at Multi Cargo wharves will require a paper copy of the carter’s note.
you submit a weight with your Pre-advice and have the VGM confirmed on the
port, the VGM weight will be updated by the stevedores and there will be no
charge for the update.
