Descartes Air Cargo Advance Screening Solutions Provides Compliance Technology
Nippon Cargo Airlines confirmed this week the implementation of the Descartes Air Cargo Advance Screening Program to support efforts towards compliance for air cargo imports to the U.S. The announcement confirmed with the mandatory advanced security filings taking place, the company will rely heavily on the required ACAS to meet compliance requirements.
“Compliance with regulations, such as ACAS, is essential to ensuring safe and secure operations for our customers and NCA,” said Keita Sataka, Senior Vice President at NCA. “Descartes has a strong history of providing NCA and the air cargo industry with customs and security filing technology, and their ACAS solution provides a proven, reliable, cost effective way to meet data collection and submission requirements.”
The functionality of the ACAS requires pre-loading data to be submitted, following mandatory data requirements for air forwarders and carriers. The Descartes Global Logistics Network streamlines the validation process by managing the flow of master and house bill information with automation.
“We’re pleased to help NCA comply with ACAS requirements,” said Scott Sangster, VP Global Logistics Network at Descartes. “Air cargo transportation is a vital part of the growing international logistics market, and Descartes’ solutions help carriers, like NCA, and other stakeholders in the air cargo community accelerate the movement of freight while meeting important security initiatives worldwide.”
