No less than twenty-four hours prior to loading on a vessel for the United States, an Importer Security Filing (ISF) must be submitted to Customs and Border Protection. This filing, along with the carrier’s AMS filing, give Customs the ability to perform risk assessment on cargo.
G-TRAC allows customers to enter either their full ISF (ISF-10) for cargo destined for unloading at a United States port, or the ISF-5 for Foreign Remaining On Board (FROB) cargo that will be in transit to a country other than the United States.
Select from any of the trading parties located in your G-TRAC database of trading partners. Incorporate the necessary information for a single transaction bond as well.
And as with the rest of G-TRAC, milestone messages can be sent to whomever has subscribed to learn of an ISF’s filing and acceptance.
Contact G-TRAC today for more information and a demonstration of the Importer Security Filing module and the rest of its features.
G-TRAC’s ISF module does not submit data to CBP automatically, but provides it to a Customs broker to submit on the Importer of Record’s behalf.
