Carriers and forwarders can now exchange mandatory messages with Indian Customs authorities using the CHAMP automated Global Customs Gateway (GCG) service. The GCG service facilitates message exchange between carriers and 31 other Customs authorities around the globe. The advanced customs solution converts messages to the specific protocols and formats required by the different authorities, simplifying the process and reducing declaration errors.

More than 60 carriers and ground handlers already use the CHAMP application for the European Union Import Control System (EU ICS) which was implemented for the European Union customs territory covering 27 EU member states plus Norway and Switzerland.
