Shipment Identification Simplified with Amber Road’s Cargo Screening Solution

Global logistics providers seeking a unique solution to overcome challenges related to trade regulations – such as Know Your Customer, and trying to avoid fines and penalties should look no further than Amber Road’s recently launched Carrier Cargo Screening Solution.

The new cargo screening solution – which is equipped with advanced computational linguistics algorithms and translated technical phraseology, was built to assist carriers in quickly navigating through high-volume, multiple provider shipment challenges and accurately identify prohibited, hazardous, or dual-use goods.

“Global trade requires that companies keep up with ever-changing regulations and standards of reasonable care to maintain their trade privileges,” Nathan Pieri, Chief Product Officer at Amber Road said. “However, the market has been devoid of tools to meet these more stringent examinations. With our new Carrier Cargo Screening Solution, we have developed new content libraries and advanced algorithms to offer a robust supply chain risk platform ideally suited for global logistics providers.”

Amber Road’s Carrier Cargo Screening Solution offers advanced risk scoring capabilities that provide carriers alerts to potential issues within shipments. The solution’s unique use of technology further simplifies processes when problems arise, as it is equipped to resolve issues within the platform.

“We are very excited about the impact our new solution will have in the carrier industry,” said Jim Preuninger, CEO, Amber Road.  “We have solved a critical problem by combining our advanced technologies with our vast experience in linking software with content.  We expect our new offering to generate significant interest and meaningful new subscriptions starting this year.”

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.”

“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.”
