Software ready to go for latest Automated Manifest Requirement
Oceanwide Inc. announced the completion of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) certification for third party vendors of Truck AMS solutions. This certification makes Oceanwide one of the first software vendors approved for Truck AMS submission.
Oceanwide was the first software company to successfully transmit an EDI message to the Truck AMS portal and received a Certificate of Appreciation from CBP this February for their assistance in testing the automated manifest system.
In order to meet the requirements of the 2002 Trade Act all trucks crossing into the US will need to submit Advance Manifest Information through the Truck e-manifest (AMS) service. Truck AMS is the fourth installment of CBP’s automated manifest system, requiring truck carriers to submit electronic manifest information to CBP one hour before any truck arrives at a border crossing.
The Company offers over 20 years experience delivering customs communications solutions, as well as considerable expertise with platform-to-platform integration in multiple formats. 10 years ago, Oceanwide became the first company to offer Air Manifest software and remains the market leader in automated manifest solutions.
Carrier testing of CBP’s ACE portal and third party manifest submission software has already extended beyond Blaine, Washington to additional Western Washington ports and CBP has announced plans to expand Truck AMS testing to port clusters surrounding; Douglas, AZ; Highgate Springs, VT; Eagle Pass, TX; Pembina, ND and Detroit, MI.
