We're committed to making sure safety at sea comes first—for you, your cargo, and our people.

Mondiale VGL adheres to the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) International Convention as part of our multi-modal transport pathways. This includes declarations for the Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of containers transported on merchant ships between ports.

Supporting the safety of our seafarers and your cargo

The SOLAS and VGM declaration complies with the International Maritime Organisation's (IMO) regulations regarding safety and VGM concerns.


Applicable globally, regulations require freight forwarders, shippers, and vessel and terminal operators to implement policies to enforce the accurate and timely reporting of cargo VGM.


The consequences of false declarations may lead to:

• Injury or death

• Cargo collapse

• Vessel instability

• Vessel damage and damage to other cargo

• Infrastructure and processing breakdowns

• Transport delays if cargo is heavier than stated

Mondiale VGL takes these regulations seriously. You can trust we'll ensure safe and reliable transport that adheres to these rules and delivers your cargo securely to its destination.

SOLAS & VGM compliance, sorted.

As a trusted leader in freight forwarding, we'll guide you through your SOLAS and VGM regulation requirements.


Guidelines differ between countries, and we'll be on hand to ensure you get the correct information for the most efficient freight services wherever your cargo is travelling.
