Different requirements for AMS and ENS?

Who should send AMS data?How many days in advance?

According to the regulations of U.S. Customs, the freight forwarder closest to the direct exporter is required to send AMS information. However, in the domestic context, most forwarders are picked up by the shipping company or booking agent. In the process of delivery, due to uncertain customs regulations, service attitude, conflict of interest and lack of attention to AMS, customs clearance may be delayed or even fined.

Some people also call AMS 24-hour manifest forecast. As the name suggests, it is necessary to send the manifest 24 hours in advance. However, the shipping company or the freight forwarder for the same trade will ask for AMS information very early (the shipping company usually closes the customs three or four days in advance). For the exporter, the information given three or four days in advance may be incorrect, and once the customs is closed, the shipping company is required to change AMS.

In addition, 24 hours in advance is not limited by the sailing time. It should be required to get the receipt from the U.S. Customs 24 hours before the box is loaded on the ship (the freight forwarder gets OK / 1y, and the shipping company or wharf gets 69). There is no rule on how far in advance shipments can be made. No matter how early it is sent, it is useless not to get the correct receipt.
