Bond – Mysteries and Myths – AMS View•Does an Importer Need a Bond to File an ISF – NO. You can have yourABI broker or your AMS Provider (Carrier, NVO, FF) file for you•Can an Importer SELF FILE? - Yes. For this, you will need a bond.Activity 1, 2 3 or 4 Bond is needed. There are also now available ISF bonds 1,2, 7, 8 & 10.•Can an NVO , Master Carrier or Freight Forwarder who files AMStoday for an Importer, also file the ISF for them without obtaininganother bond (other than the Type 3 Carrier Bond you already have today) –Yes, you can file ISF today without an additional bond.•Does the Importer Bond # need to be given to the filer to send yourISF through AMS? No, If the importer has a bond, US Customs will havethis linked to their EIN Number and therefore does not need the additionalinformation sent to them.

Being the“bad guy” about not providing the BL Numbers to Clients in a timely mannerStow Plan – Providing stow plan messages just after sailing, then makingchanges when changes occur.ISF 5 – Foreign to Foreign Shipments – Reporting the Booking Party Dataand Destination details prior to loading.Container Status Messages – EDI - Tens of Thousands of Equipment movesbeing sent to many different vendors and now directing those same moves toUS Customs for shipments destined to the US.
