Descartes Systems Group has announced the addition of several new services to address customs regulations and compliance standards, including Ocean AMS for Mexico, Import2000 Terminal Service and Multilingual ACE-for-Trucks.
The Multilingual ACE-4-Trucks service lets truckers electronically submit waybill and trip information to CBP prior to arriving at the border between Mexico and the U.S, the company said. This is in response to a May 2007 ruling that all trucks report cargo, shipper and recipient for all goods crossing the border.
Ocean AMS for Mexico was added to help carriers and non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCCs) comply with new regulations requiring them to electronically file vessel manifests with Mexicans Customs 24 hours before vessel departure. The web-based service transmits the data directly to customs, the company said.
According to Descartes, the Import2000 Terminal Service enables marine container terminals and ocean carriers to know immediately which ocean containers have been released from the port by CBP, alerting users of whether containers have been held for further examination.
The company also announced the enhanced of its Global Logistics Network Customs Compliance suite in response to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection “10+2” proposed cargo security filing, requiring importers to send 10 new data elements 24 hours before departure and two message sets within 48 hours of departure.
