Advanced Cargo Declaration Surcharge

As from January 1, 2018 onwards StreamLines is required to implement an ACDS (Advanced Cargo Declaration Surcharge) fee.

For all container cargo destined for the USA and Europe, shipping companies are required to offer Advanced Cargo Declaration Systems that synchronize cargo and freight manifests with the internal import control systems of customs authorities.

StreamLines has been providing this service free of charge as this system was in the development and implementation process.
As from January 1, 2018 onwards StreamLines is required to implement a fee of USD 25 per Bill of Lading for all import and export cargo to cover the administrative costs of this system.
