Abstract
Safety is crucial in the shipping industry, however in the current export container activity there are many factors that can cause an accident. To prevent an accident, regulation play an important role. With regulation, safety can be implemented to decrease the risk. Therefore, IMO has amended the SOLAS's regulation that requires the shipper of a packed container to provide the carrier with the Container's Verified Gross Mass (VGM) before the stowage on board of a ship. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of VGM implementation at port of Tg. Priok. By Using qualitative descriptive method, it is concluded that there are some differences before and after this regulation is implemented and VGM regulation implementation also affect the port charge for the shipping process at Port of Tg. Priok.
