ISS Launches ACI Department for Canadian Ports

June 11, 2013

Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS), a maritime services provider, has launched an Advanced Cargo Information (ACI) department for Canadian ports following new regulations and procedures for cargo and vessel reporting by the CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency).

Based in Montreal, Canada, the centralized ISS ACI department will offer expert guidance on all cargo and reporting requirements to shipowners or charterers with vessels arriving at Canadian ports.

Services provided by the new ACI department will include assistance in obtaining a carrier code, advance manifesting for all Canadian Ports and, if required, conveyance reporting and arrival messaging. Several major carriers have already subscribed to the service.

New CBSA regulations and procedures include a new Conveyance Arrival Certification Message (CACM) introduced on June 9 2013 for applicable marine conveyance arrivals, such as vessels arriving with cargo for discharge or with freight remaining on board. Marine carriers or their authorized service providers are now required to transmit a CACM message via an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) method to the CBSA.
