China Customs Advance Manifest (CCAM)
As of June 1st 2018, Chinese Customs have enforced additional regulatory requirements for all inbound cargo to/from or via China. These new procedures mean that additional Shipper and Consignee details are required and must be supplied at an earlier time than before (individual rules per carrier will apply). Clients will be informed of applicable deadlines at the time of booking.
In detail the following information must be sent to the Carrier when Chinese ports are involved in a particular shipment (depending on the Carrier):
An accurate and total representation of all goods under the Bills of Lading
The Consignor/Shipper details must now include; the company phone number and contact person’s name and phone number.
The Consignee details must now include; the full company name and company code/s* (for example – USCI, VAT, MOMS, Org or CIK and EIN). The Consignee’s phone number is also required. There can be exceptions when the Consignee is “TO ORDER OF” or “TO THE ORDER OF”.
