• Controlled Military Items - PROHIBITED

    With immediate effect the transport of controlled military items is PROHIBITED. Controlled military items includes items subject the International Trade in Arms Regulations (ITAR) and 600 Series items (export and re-export) and military items subject to national export controls.

    The standard definition of military items is ‘items designed or modified for military use’ and therefore includes weapons systems; military aircraft and vehicles; but also spare parts and components. It is the responsibility of the shipper to determine whether the shipment contains controlled military items.

    We will continue to ship non-controlled items to or from military or defence-related entities. Mail is therefore not prohibited.

    If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact us. As always we appreciate any feedback you provide.

  • ACS EUROPE CUSTOMER NEWSLETTER

    Full Compliance Required on FWB/FHL Data to Bangkok (BKK), Hong Kong (HKG), Seoul Incheon (ICN) & Narita (NRT)

    We are facing compliance challenges with customs for any shipments in transit through Russia when the FWB/FHL data is missing. Therefore to ensure continuity of service and following the least complex approach, we require with immediate effect our GSAs to become part of the process to ensure compliance.

    All shipments with final destination BKK/NRT/ICN/HKG must have 100% compliant FWB/FHL in Descartes. We require our GSAs to:

    • Ensure via the Descartes platform that all their customer’s MAWBs are compliant (FWB/FHL data inserted) when they leave origin.
    • Check in the Descartes platform if FWB/FHL for their respective MAWBs are available. If not ensure data is completed directly in Descartes platform when the shipment leaves origin.

    We appreciate your support in this important & urgent matter. Non-compliance will put our services in jeopardy.

    Commodity Code: MM for Mail / Postal Shipments

    Effective immediately we require all Mail or Postal shipments to be booked with commodity code MM in our CMS booking tool.
