Starting 4 November, Canada Customs (CBSA has introduced several changes on Electronic House Bills filing and is enforcing the CA eManifest program.
Currently, as a carrier, you are reporting flight and AWB / HWB data to Canada Customs, via the following messages: CVR ( Air Conveyance Report), ACR (Air Cargo Report), and SCR (Supplementary Shipment).
This means that forwarders or carriers acting as freight forwarders must transmit House Bills information (Service Option 950 ) along with House Bill Close Message (Service Option 968) for all consolidated shipments that are non-exempt import and in-bond. The electronic Service House Bill (Option 950 ) is replacing the Supplementary Cargo Report (SCR) service (Option 687) except for FROB in air mode and in-transit.
In case you are acting as freight forwarders, the new rules mandate :
CHAMP is already offering an eManifest reporting solution for forwarders. TGC as a service is technically capable to transmit the aforementioned messages, HWB message, and HWB close message but this is specifically for customers being forwarders and in consequence, is currently limited to only send the forwarder-related messages.
TGC needs to be adjusted such that carriers also can use the Canada forwarder functionality. CHAMP’s TGC team is currently assessing how to add this functionality for carriers in line with the new regulation. We will provide an update within the next 2 weeks on the timelines and implications.
