Bookmark and Share

AUTOMATED MANIFEST SYSTEM (AMS) is a multi-modular cargo inventory control and release notification system. AMS is the electronic system allowing a manifest inventory to be transmitted to the US Customs Service data center by carrier, port authority or service center computers. AMS interfaces directly with Customs Cargo Selectivity and In-Bond systems, and indirectly with ABI, allowing faster identification and release of low risk shipments.
