About ACI Air
The Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program was deployed by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to better manage cargo risking. ACI requires all air carriers and freight forwarders to electronically transmit conveyance, cargo, house bill and supplementary cargo data to the CBSA four hours prior to arrival in Canada.
GeTS’ ACI Air service allows trade participants to submit the full range of CBSA mandated requirements such as Air Conveyance Reporting (ACVR), and Air Cargo Reporting (ACR) and Split Shipment Reporting (SSR). House bill or Supplementary Cargo Report (SCR) feature is available for shipments consigned to freight forwarders.
Additionally, GeTS relays Risk Assessment Notices when applicable. “Hold” and “Hold Cancellation” messages are sent back through the portal. These messages are easily accessed, allowing users to rapidly take the appropriate corrective measures.
GeTS also provides additional electronic messaging system for carriers transporting the merchandise to transmit Conveyance Arrival Certification Messages (CACM) within our ACI service to encapsulate all carrier requirements.
