International filing systems for the USA
Automated Manifest System (AMS)
Due to severe security measures, the Automated Manifest System (AMS) states that American customs have to be informed 24 hours in advance of shipments to as well as from the United States.
Import Security Filing (ISF)
The Import Security Filing (ISF), also known as “10+2”, was implemented by the US Customs and Border Protection, and determines that freight must be declared to US customs 24 hours before being loaded into a container or ship.
Automated Commercial Environment (ACE)
Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s electronic manifest program, which was implemented in 2007 and demands carriers to register an ACE manifest at least one hour before arriving at the border.
Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS)
Similarly to ACE, the Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) Program, which was launched on June 12 2018, states that advanced air cargo information on shipments arriving in the United States from a foreign location, must be declared beforehand.
