The verifiable, legal-for-trade Ravas iForks, available exclusively from SCACO, are the ideal method to solve the new SOLAS method 2 weighing requirements.

SOLAS regulations require that as of July 2016 the verified gross weight of containers must be made known before loading them onto a ship. Determining the container weight can be done by weighing the packed container (Method n.1), or by weighing the individual items in the container, earlier in the chain (Method n.2).
