Important Updates on Cargo Security and Customs Compliance

A typical cross-border shipment requires compliance with more than 600 laws and trade regulations, with new ones introduced every year. Failure to comply results in delayed shipments, fines, and in some cases, loss of export licenses and jail time. In this episode, Kevin Gavin, VP of Supply Chain Compliance at Descartes, provides an update on several important cargo security and customs compliance initiatives, such as the Importer Security Filing (ISF) and Air Cargo Advance Screening (ACAS) program, along with some recommendations for shippers, freight forwarders, and 3PLs on how to create best-in-class cargo security and customs compliance processes.
