ACI OCEAN

Advance Commercial Information (ACI) requires marine carriers to electronically transmit marine cargo data to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) 24 hours prior to loading cargo at a foreign port (including the U.S.). If the voyage is less than 24 hours in duration, the cargo and conveyance data must be reported at the time of departure from the foreign port.

Getting Started with ACI

For a carrier (MVOCC) or a freight forwarder (NVOCC) to get set up with ACI, it is a very simple and straight forward process:

1.  Apply for a Canadian carrier code for ACI reporting purposes

2. To subscribe and complete the CBSA application online.
