Monday, December 03, 2012

Descartes Systems Group the first to be accepted to electronically file customs documents to Japan Customs under new rules.

The company has singned an agreement with Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System, Inc. (NACCS Center) to electronically file customs documents to Japan Customs in compliance with the newly enacted Advanced Filing Rules.

Earlier this year, a bill to amend part of the Customs Tariff Law was passed through the Diet legislature in Japan. This amendment enacts the Advance Filing Rules, which require a vessel operator or non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC) to electronically submit to Japan Customs the information on maritime container cargo intended for a port in Japan. In principle, this submission should happen no later than 24 hours before departure of the vessel from a port of loading. The electronic report from foreign filers will be made through service providers authorized by NACCS Center.

"We're pleased to announce that Descartes has agreed to be the first service provider in ensuring our customers' compliance with the new Advanced Filing Rules. This is the first time we've signed an agreement with an overseas service provider since NACCS Center was founded in 1977. We can call it a big step forward for global activity," said Mr. Takuo Yoshimoto, President & CEO, NACCS Center. "Descartes' experience in advance manifest filing services in Canada, the United States and other countries has been of great assistance to us as we prepare for the Advance Filing Rules."

Descartes Group is headquartered in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada and has offices and partners around the world.
