Oceanwide Offers ACI Phase 2 in Multiple Formats Any-to-Any Data Translation Supports Conversion to UN/EDIFACT Requirement
Oceanwide Inc. (http://www.oceanwide.com), a leading provider of on-demand software for international trade, announced the availability of sophisticated data translation services to help companies meet the Canada Border Services AgencyÂs (CBSA) UN/EDIFACT requirement for Advance Commercial Information (ACI) Phase 2 reporting.
The service enables reporting companies to submit Commercial Information in any electronic format (XML, X12, Cargo IMP, Web Form) for translation to EDIFACT and submission to CBSA. Oceanwide currently manages platform-to-platform integration for over 500 clients, including SITA integration for Air AMS (US Customs and Border Protection), importers, freight forwarders and customs brokers.
Unlike CBPÂs Air AMS program, Air ACI will not initially support industry-standard Cargo IMP messaging. Participants will either need to develop EDIFACT messaging in-house or turn to third party providers like Oceanwide. Additional and updated information on ACI requirements is available at http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/import/advance/menu-e.html.
Oceanwide has become one of the worldÂs largest providers of automated manifest solutions to the air cargo industry. OceanwideÂs software allows user to access a single interface for North American manifest compliance, completing and transmitting manifest data to US Customs for AMS or Canadian Customs for ACI.
Oceanwide has been providing Air AMS application for more than 10 years as EDITRADE and today it is the first company to actively and successfully test third party Truck AMS software with US Customs, receiving a certificate of appreciation from CBP this February and becoming one of the first software companies to be approved third party vendors of Truck AMS solutions in May 2005.
