Satisfied Customers


“Rogers & Brown has been working with Mercedes longer than I have been here, but I can speak of the last three years where they have done exceptional work for us. They are adaptive to our demands and able to produce consistently strong performance in an often challenging environment. Dealing with variables such as rail and transport companies can be a challenging and dynamic environment, but Rogers & Brown has been able to ensure consistency with the factors they control, and has gone above and beyond to mitigate the fallout when things out of their control go wrong. Strong communication, great follow up and dependable, consistent performance. We have set Rogers & Brown to work with some of our other business partners in the area, and I wouldn’t hesitate in the slightest to have them work with you all in your operations.”

Verified Gross Mass (VGM) Best Practices

The Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) amendment requires that a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) must be submitted for a container prior to being loaded onto a vessel and this will go into effect July 1, 2016.  Of course, there are concerns on how this process will work as this will affect all members of the shipping community. This week the Ocean Carrier Equipment Management Association (OCEMA) released best practices for the acceptance and transmission of VGM along with a process map to help shippers understand how VGM data should be submitted.
More specific details on the VGM processes and communication flow between shippers, Rogers & Brown and the carriers will follow. Should you have any questions regarding the VGM, please feel free to contact our Sales team at [email protected].
