Advance data required by CBP for China mail

The new year brings a requirement for airlines and ocean carriers transporting international mail from China to file advance electronic data.

 
As of Jan. 1, airlines and ocean carriers transporting international mail from China to the United States are required to file advance electronic data with Customs and Border Protection.
    This rule applies to mail not only originating in mainland China but in the countrys special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau.
    CBP said it wants carriers to communicate with postal officials in China, Hong Kong and Macau to “confirm that 100 percent of containers with postal shipments” include advance electronic data before loading. If this information is missing, then the carrier should not accept the container, the agency said.
    CBP said among its enforcement actions for noncompliance could be to order the return of those Chinese mail shipments without 100 percent advance electronic data.
An often heard concern pertaining to online freight platforms is that they will lead to a ‘race to the bottom’ as shippers will always choose the lowest rate. Based on access to 780,000 online spot rate offers, I have analyzed to which degree this fear is real. The data is clear. In cases where shippers had a choice between different providers for a departure on the same day, 49 percent did not choose the cheapest provider.
CMA CGM has begun purchasing slots on the Evergreen Line/Emirates/CMA CGM/KMTC/COSCO - AGI. The AGI also has added the vessel Beijing Bridge, which increased the vessel count from five to six and increased the total capacity by 4,378 TEUs or 21 percent.
