About ACI BayPlan
GeTS’ ACI Bay Plan is an industry leading service that allows marine carriers to submit cargo stowage data directly to the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) via Advance Commercial Information (ACI). It helps clients streamline marine customs processing and better comply with the CBSA regulations.
ACI Bay Plan is a key piece of the CBSA’s overall ACI electronic cargo and conveyance reporting initiative. The bayplan, or stowage plan, is a document used by parties in the marine transportation industry to identify all the containers and their locations on a container vessel. This information is used to plan the loading and discharge of container/cargo for each port.
As an added benefit to GeTS customers, ACI Ocean subscribers have the additional benefit of mapping Bay Plan data from Ocean eManifest Conveyance and Cargo records already in the system. This mapping tool allows users to save time and eliminate errors associated with manual data entry.
