ConPESO is a Marketplace platform that facilitates compliance with the legislation on the verified gross mass (VGM) of containers. This legislation was passed by the IMO Maritime Safety Committee as part of the SOLAS Convention, which has been in effect worldwide since 1st July 2016.
This tool, supported by the Port Authority of Valencia, provides shippers or their representatives with a network of properly calibrated scales connected to the ValenciaportPCS portal, which enables automatic sending of the information to the shipping companies and terminals, thus avoiding errors and eliminating wait times.
Users of this service can consult the available scales on a map and on a list, where they will also find relevant information regarding the exact location of the scale, total price of the service and opening hours.
Once the weighing requests have been created using the ValenciaportPCS admission order data, the carriers can go to the selected scale for weighing. From here, the VGM is automatically calculated and sent to the shipping company and the terminal, using the information on the tare weight of the trucks registered in the conPESO database. This VGM is transmitted electronically to the shipping company and the terminal via ValenciaportPCS.
