Freight Forwarders, Here’s How To Achieve Total Control Over Your Operations
Freight Forwarders, achieve total operational control over often-chaotic forwarding activities with Logi-Sys’ opt-in modules:
Ensure complete customs regulations and compliance requirements for US Customs.
This module addresses customs regulations and compliance requirements for US Customs.
The Automated Export System (AES) plug-in enables the US Customs filing requirements by sending the export shipment data electronically to US Customs via Logi-Sys. The shipment information once entered at the booking level or house/master level, gets directly available at the AES filing level, thus reducing data entry and avoiding any manual errors. Moreover, the system is equipped to validate the data against the requirements stated by customs regulatory bodies for efficient AES transmissions. Further, the ITN number received on acceptance gets associated at the shipment level for easy reference and to get printed on the required documents.
Ocean AMS is a solution built into our Logi-Sys application to comply with Customs’ 24-hour manifest regulation. The solution devised reduces the amount of time needed to submit the cargo declaration to the AMS at US Customs since you do not need to retype any information you already have at the shipment level. When you are ready to send your declaration, Logi-Sys runs a detailed validation procedure and shows you the fields that did not pass the validation. This allows you to fix the errors before sending the information to the US Customs AMS system.
Logi-Sys has been certified by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to offer Importer Security Filing (ISF), also called the 10+2 initiative. Logi-Sys has incorporated the ISF feature so you can easily transmit the shipment data to CBP. Similar to AMS, Logi-Sys gathers the information already entered in your shipment and places it in an ISF form for you. This speeds up the filing process and eliminates dual data entry errors. The software runs a validation procedure to make sure no vital data is missing. After validation, the transaction is transmitted to the CBP system. CBP notifications are received in the system and saved in the appropriate shipment for easy reference.
A “Denied Party” is any individual or company that has been denied exporting privileges by the U.S. government and cannot import into or export from the U.S. Failure to comply with these regulations is a violation of U.S. law and can result in fines, penalties, criminal or civil prosecution, and denial of export privileges. Logi-Sys takes care of Denied Party Screening very efficiently. While creating any party/company, the system automatically checks whether it’s being denied and thereby allows the user to perform further operations. Additionally, there is an admin approval functionality wherein though any user can add a party, unless the admin approves the same, it won’t get reflected at the shipment level.
Logi-Sys is equipped with the Known Shipper Functionality, with a simple mouse click, additionally storing the reason codes and the respective references.
If needed, Logi-Sys can be easily integrated with the existing ABI system; else, the same would be provided via our partner system, based out in the US itself. Logi-Sys having a standard EDI interface guarantees any third-party integration to be very effective in terms of quality as well as time.
