|AMS is issue by Vessel Company to your Freight Forwarders at the time of booking your shipment (most-of-time).
AMS stands for Automated Manifest System and is another part of Customs ACS. AMS allows Customs to get information contained on ocean bills
of lading and airway bills electronically. It is a cargo inventory control and release notification system for the use of air, ocean, and rail carriers and
speeds the flow of cargo and entry processing. While most ocean carriers are on the AMS system, not all carriers are using the electronic system.
Additionally, while some air carriers in some ports use AMS, their counterparts in different ports may not.
