Descartes Systems Group, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) logistics solutions provider, announced that carriers, including Con-way Freight, are preparing for the soon-to-be-mandatory Advanced Commercial Information (ACI) Truck e-manifest requirements from Canada by using Descartes' Global Logistics Network (GLN) Customs Filing & Compliance suite.
On January 12th, the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced a revised ACI e-Manifest initiative which mandates that CBSA receive advance electronic notification of cargo shipments arriving in Canada by highway. Descartes reports it has extended its Global Logistics Network Compliance service to help the international carrier community comply with this e-Manifest initiative.
According to Descartes, Con-way Freight is among a select group of less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers authorized by CBSA to benefit from a streamlined import process in advance of the formal regulation mandate by sending electronic cargo and conveyance information to CBSA.
