AMS – Automated Manifest System – United States security
The Automated Manifest System (AMS) was introduced by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This initiative is a multi-modular cargo inventory control and release notification system for sea, air and rail carriers. AMS speeds the flow of cargo and entry processing and provides participants with electronic authorization to move cargo prior to arrival.
The Automated Manifest System or the AMS System is an integral part of the United States’ efforts to clamp down on potential security threats. The system was incorporated in the year 2004 and since its inception has streamlined the marine inventorying aspects. Apart from the marine domain, this freight tracking system is also applicable in the areas of air, rail and road cargo transference.
Atlas Line is offering their agents full compliance with the Automated Manifest System applied by the Customs and Border Protection in the United States.
