CHAMP Cargosystems, a leading global IT provider to the air cargo industry, has extended the scope of its Traxon Global Customs (TGC) solution to freight forwarders in light of changing regulations by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).
The third phase of the CBSA’s Advance Commercial Information programme (ACI), eManifest, is part of its ongoing efforts to introduce more effective risk management processes. It makes compulsory the advance electronic transmission of customs and clearance information from forwarders, which requires changes to their daily operations.
The CBSA is the first Customs authority that has required Forwarder direct filing. The programme will have a phased transitional launch for eManifest adoption.
