Trade Tech Authorized Under Japan Manifest Rule

Trade Tech’s Syrinx Solution meets security requirements and has been authorized unde Japan’s manifest rule.

January 28, 2013

Trade Tech announced it is the first US-based provider to have its electronic filing solution authorized by Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System (NACCS), the Japanese government entity responsible for import/export and Customs clearance services.

Since Japan’s Advance Filing Rules require shippers to use NACCS to file their maritime container cargo information electronically, the organization is authorizing third-party service providers capable of handling this task. Trade Tech was selected by NACCS as the first US-based solution provider to receive authorization, according to Bryn Heimbeck, president of Trade Tech. He cited the company’s cloud-based Automated Manifest System (AMS) experience and said it is the largest provider of NVO security in the US and Canada.

During a signing ceremony at NACCS’ headquarters in Kawasaki, Japan, Mr. Takuo Yoshimoto, said, “I am very pleased to share that NACCS Center and Trade Tech signed the service provider agreement on Advance Filing Rules at our headquarters today. Trade Tech, the first authorized service provider in the U.S., has considerable experience and achievements as a service provider for advance filing rules of foreign Customs administrations such as the U.S. AMS filing. Partnering with Trade Tech is encouraging news to ensure smooth operations of Japan’s Advance Filing Rules. With an eye toward the formal launch of the rules in March next year, we are going to spend time cooperating closely to build the system and be ready by then.”

Japan’s Advance Filing Rules require vessel operators and NVOCCs to electronically submit detailed information on maritime container cargoes at least 24 hours before departure of the vessel from a port of loading. Japan’s 24-hour rule mirrors requirements already in place for the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the European Union.

“We are very excited about working with NACCS to support implementation of Japan’s 24-hour rule,” said Heimbeck.
