Oceanwide provides access to advanced notice portal
Canadian logistics, compliance and insurance software company Oceanwide Inc. on Wednesday said it is the first Canadian company to provide access for their customers to the Air Advanced Commercial Information (AACI) portal for carriers and forwarders.
Oceanwide said in a statement that its software allows airlines and their partners to file mandatory advanced manifest to Canadian Customs in keeping with an upcoming Dec. 12 voluntary deadline.
The advanced manifest rules went into effect first in the United States, and then in Canada as a part of that nation's cargo security initiative. The information transmitted to the governments for inspection prior to the goods leaving their origin countries allows for proactive measures to turn away goods deemed potentially unsafe.
Oceanwide, based in Montreal, provides online cargo insurance, customized messaging software, warehouse management, customs clearance and advanced manifest/commercial invoice information and online logistics software for the trade community.
