ISS adds Canadian cargo info department

June 12 - Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has launched its advanced cargo information (ACI) department for Canadian ports, following new regulations and procedures for cargo and vessel reporting issued by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA).

The ISS ACI department, based in Montreal, will offer guidance on all cargo and reporting requirements to shipowners or charterers arriving at Canadian gateways.
New CBSA regulations include a Conveyance Arrival Certification Message (CACM) requirement, introduced June 9, 2013. CACM is applicable to all marine conveyance arrivals, such as vessels arriving with cargo for discharge or with freight remaining on board. Carriers are now required to transmit a CACM message via an electronic data interchange (EDI) method to the CBSA.
"With the CBSA's regulations and procedures now underway, the new ACI service will enable owners and charters to meet all ACI needs simply and efficiently," says Jason Skorski, ISS general manager, Eastern Canada.
