Trade Tech, an Internet-based supply chain and transportation application service provider, has developed a cost-effective online application to meet the new Advance Manifest System (AMS) requirement for Mexico, which mandates that manifests be filed electronically 24 hours prior to cargo loading.
Known as the Mexico Cargo Security Filing solution, the new application was created for freight forwarders, ship operators, and beneficial cargo owners to help them save time and money and meet Mexico's specific online filing requirements. Mexico also requires that this data be entered manually, which is one of Trade Tech's key service advantages. Trade Tech does all of the manual entry and its customers' confidential shipper and consignee information is protected.
At the heart of the application are specific data elements for creating an electronic manifest, including name and complete address of the shipper, consignee, and notify party as stated in the bill of lading; amount/number of packages and measurement unit; gross weight or volume of the merchandise; merchandise description; number, quantity, and dimensions of containers; seal number(s) for each container; type of service contracted; and for hazardous merchandise, the class division (IMO class), United Nations number (UN Nr), and contact telephone number in case of emergency.
The system also provides information on the ship's estimated date of arrival or departure, the vessel's name and voyage number, and the vessel's radio call sign.
