Descartes makes NCA Acas-compliant
Descartes Systems Group, a logistics IT provider, has announced that Nippon Cargo Airlines (NCA), operator of airfreight services to 15 cities in Asia, the USA and Europe, is using the Descartes air cargo advance screening solution (Acas) to meet the recent mandatory advanced security filing requirements for air cargo imports into the USA.
Descartes' Acas consolidates mandatory Acas data from multiple sources, checks that it conforms to the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP)'s unique Acas message formats, and submits those documents to CBP once they have passed all validations.
The solution uses the Descartes global logistics network to manage the flow of master and house bill information to file directly to CBP without manual intervention. (ah)
