Descartes Systems Group, a global on-demand software-as-a-service logistics solutions provider, says it has extended its Global Logistics Network Compliance Service offering for electronic customs filing and cross-border compliance to include ground vehicles entering Canada.
On Jan. 12, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced a revised Advance Commercial Information (ACI) e-Manifest initiative, which mandates that CBSA receive advance electronic notification of cargo shipments arriving in Canada by highway. Descartes says the extension to its Global Logistics Network Compliance Service helps the international carrier community comply with this initiative.
The Descartes service was created to help marine and air carriers file electronic manifests to comply with United States Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) e-Manifest initiative for cargo entering the U.S. from Canada and Mexico. The service evolved to help customers meet the regulatory requirements established by CBSA for air and marine shipments into Canada from points worldwide. The service was recently extended to address the U.S. ACE e-manifest initiative covering ground transportation.
