Red Bank, NJ, December 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- LOG-NET, Inc., an industry leader in international web-based supply chain execution solutions, is ready for U.S. Customs Interim Final Rule. LOG-NET’s web-based portal services allows importers, or their agents, to file the required importer data elements directly to U.S. Customs to comply with the “10+2” regulation.
CBP officially released today, its long-awaited interim final rule on the Importer Security Filing, also known as the “10+2” rule. Beginning January 26, 2009, all importers will be required to provide CBP with additional data elements 24 hours prior to lading for all ocean shipments inbound to the United States.
LOG-NET previously announced the availability of its Importer Security Filing (ISF) Options several months ago, before “10+2” became a rule. “We have been testing this capability and our clients and other early adapters preparing for this regulation are seeing the potential for two to five additional days of inventory in their supply chains. We want to help them avoid this by implementing seamless electronic solutions over the web,” noted John Motley, president and CEO of LOG-NET, Inc.
Many importers who are concerned about the challenge of collecting the required information and transmitting this to Customs in a timely fashion have focused on processing through destination Customs Brokers. This service will enable importers to file from any location via shippers, forwarders or brokers.
LOG-NET offers several tiers of service supporting various levels of automation among importers. The company is also providing input on various best-of-breed processes for implementing 10+2 with the smallest impact on the global supply chain.
This technological innovation enables importers to focus on the necessary process changes needed to comply with the regulation while improving the seamlessness of their supply chain visibility. To find out more about LOG-NET’s ISF Options, visit their webpage at www.LOG-NET.com/ISF.
