CrimsonLogic recently implemented what it said was a comprehensive, electronic end-to-end solution that is quick to launch, cost-effective and intuitive to use for Canaan Transport Group Inc., a Canadian freight forwarder which offers an integrated transportation solution for clients who need freight forwarding, supply chain management, logistics, and import or export cargo services across the globe. Canaan turned to the Singapore-based software solutions company to replace what was a time-intensive, laborious and manual process for preparing and transmitting paper work required for Canada Customs in order to attain clearance for shipments. The solutions – ACROSS/CADEX, Advance Commercial Information (ACI) Ocean and Air, and Release Notification System (RNS) – were implemented to provide real-time visibility of cargo releases by customs brokers so that Canaan Transport has immediate access to information as to whether cargo is allowed to exit their warehouse. The solutions also leverage CrimsonLogic’s direct connection to Canada Customs with built-in redundancy with CrimsonLogic’s back up secure and encrypted connection to Canada Customs. With CrimsonLogic’s webbased interface, Canaan Transport is able to send and view responses from Canada Customs even if their system is down, or login to view from home, or give overseas offices access rights to login and view or complete manifests. The solutions also allow for the transmission of release and invoice data in electronic format to the Canada Border Service Agency (CBSA), as well as transmission of pre-arrival cargo and conveyance data to CBSA. All air carriers and freight forwarders are required to electronically transmit conveyance, cargo and supplementary cargo data to the CBSA four hours prior to arrival in Canada. If the flight is less than four hours, the data has to be reported at the time of departure from the foreign airport.
