MNX Global Logistics has implemented cloud-based software from Descartes in order to comply with the US Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) mandate.
Descartes ACAS collects the required data elements, validates the data format, and transmits it to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) within the required timeframes. The solution uses the Descartes Global Logistics Network to collect house bill of lading (a transportation contract which takes place between a customer and a forwarder) information directly from the freight forwarder, to file directly to CBP without manual intervention.
ACAS became mandatory on 12 June for all airlines carrying cargo into the United States.
