Vessel Arrival Services
Vessels calling ports in the U.S. are required to submit arrival notification to the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) and U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP). These include an initial electronic arrival notification submission at least 96 or 24 hours prior to the vessel’s arrival at a port, depending on the voyage duration. The Notice of Arrival (NOA) must be updated with changes to a vessel’s schedule or other pertinent voyage/vessel changes, including crew changes and a Notice of Departure (NOD) which must be submitted when the vessel is leaving U.S. waters. Collectively this is referred to as NOA/D.
Additionally, the cargo being imported into the United States must be reported to Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) through the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system, formerly known as the Automated Manifest System (AMS). There are varying submission timelines associated with ACE/AMS filings.
HudsonAnalytix has developed a proprietary system which is integrated for the submission of the NOA/D to USCG and CBP which allows for critical review of the information provided by the vessel prior to the submission of the information to the USCG and CBP. HudsonMarine also provides ACE/AMS submission services which allow for critical review of information prior to submission of the information to CBP.
