Trade Tech and NACCS Successfully Complete Phase 1 Testing of Compliance Solution for Japan's 24-Hour Rule
Trade Tech’s solution for Japan’s Advanced Filing Rule (AFR) will be available for implementation by carriers and NVOs in early November, months ahead of JP24’s effective date
For Immediate Release:
October 24, 2013
BELLEVUE, Washington – October 24, 2013 -- Trade Tech said today that its electronic filing solution successfully completed Phase 1 testing with Nippon Automated Cargo and Port Consolidated System (NACCS) and has now moved to Phase 2 testing. Japan’s 24-Hour Advance Filing Rule goes into effect March 1, 2014.
"We are excited about successfully completing Phase 1 connection testing with NACCS,” says Heimbeck. “We are now waiting for the commencement of Phase 2 connection testing which will begin on November 5, 2013.
Trade Tech also announced that its web-based user interface is now complete and available for customers who want to sign up and begin early AFR training. "We are encouraging carriers and NVOs to begin their implementation process now for JP24 so they will have time to apply the procedures and put the proper training in place."
"Customers who want to connect via EDI can begin the set up process today by registering and securing their on-boarding packages," says Heimbeck. He went on further to say that Trade Tech is particularly proud of its newly revised Generic Security EDI map. "Our new map is designed to allow customers to use a single connection to record all security filings currently in place, as well as to set the basis for future security requirements,” he says. “This way they only have to set up one map and connection, which can be used for any new global security requirements. In other words, it allows users to handle multiple filings on a single shipment which can sometimes be the case."
The generic security EDI map is XML based to make any future additions or changes easy to implement. It also allows EDI partners to trigger multiple security filings by submitting a single data set for a shipment.
