Are you prepared for the upcoming changes to air cargo regulations? Release II of ICS2 

To gauge FIATA members’ readiness for ICS2 Release II, FIATA launched a survey last week. As a result of the implementation of the Air Cargo Advance Screening Program (ACAS) by the United States of America, the air cargo industry anticipates that multiple countries will also implement Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) programs to strengthen air cargo security and safety risk analysis. As of 1 March 2023, the revised European Union (EU) PLACI regime – Import Control System 2.0 Release 2 (ICS2 Release II) – applies to air freight.

In international trade, ICS2 streamlines and enhances security measures through a comprehensive customs management system. The purpose of this survey is to assess the readiness of the air cargo industry to implement ICS2 Release II. 

We would appreciate your input on how freight forwarders are prepared for these changes, including yourself, and how forwarders will comply with the new regulation if you could take a few minutes to fill out this survey so that FIATA can effectively support your companies in implementing it.

Brazilian customs platform to change HAWB procedures from 1 July

The FIATA would like to inform its members that the procedures for manifesting HAWB into the Brazilian customs platform will change on 1 July into a new system called CCT. As a result, airlines will no longer be the only ones responsible for this process, and the freight forwarder will also have to handle it.

The FIATA is grateful to its Brazilian Association Member, Associacao Nacional Das Empresas Transitarias, Agentes De Carga Aerea, Comissarias De Despachos E Operadores Intermodais (ACTC), for providing materials for the next e-flash.

It is important for members to be aware that the manifest must be ready before cargo arrives at Brazilian airports in its final and correct format. There will be a BRL 5,000.00 fine if this is not completed and sent to the cargo agent at least 24 hours prior to cargo departure, except for Saturday and Sunday departures, where pre-alerts should be sent by Friday at noon (12:00 PM BR time).

 This applies to both prepaid and collect shipments. Fines will be refunded if these requirements are not met.

FIATA attends ‘Hungarian Forwarders Day’ organised by the Association of Hungarian Forwarders – MSZSZ 

FIATA Director General Dr Stéphane Graber attended ‘Hungarian Forwarders Day’ on 25 May. Multimodal transport challenges, developments, and opportunities in Europe and globally were discussed by a variety of international and regional stakeholders, including CLECAT. Speakers explored sustainability, geopolitical challenges, and digitalization.

To remain competitive in the global logistics supply chain, small and medium-sized companies need an interconnected and global multimodal transport network. FIATA’s advocacy work focuses on strengthening multimodal transport corridors, which have increased in demand as a result of geopolitical changes, with updated policy and regulatory frameworks, while facilitating trade, assisting in building capacity across all regions, and offering a digitalization path to freight forwarders of all sizes.
