cieTrade Updates Their Mobile App for SOLAS/VGM Compliance

cieTrade’s time-saving ciePhoto app can now capture and upload Equipment Tare weights.

Stamford, CT, July 02, 2016 --( cieTrade Systems Inc., a global provider of business software for recycling companies, has announced an update to their widely used ciePhoto mobile app, which is used to capture container export photos, making it easier to comply with the new SOLAS/VGM requirements that go into effect Friday, July 1st.

“Our ciePhoto app has been an indispensable tool for many recyclers by greatly reducing the amount of work involved with capturing export container photos,” says David Haber, President of cieTrade Systems. “Our latest update to also record container tare weights, which is required to calculate a VGM (verified gross mass), adds even greater value by eliminating double-entry and avoiding a potential loss of productivity with the new SOLAS/VGM requirements.”

Container Equipment Tare weights captured through the updated app are automatically matched to pending shipments in the cieTrade software, eliminating the need for scale operators to manually re-key them. The Equipment Tare weight is used with the net cargo weight to calculate the VGM, which is then sent to the customer.
