Drones, Autonomous Vehicles on Course to Disrupt the Supply Chain

Originally published on August 6th on the TIA website by Grant E. Goldsmith.

Earlier this year, General Motors introduced its latest self-driving car – a car with no steering wheel or foot pedals – that’s expected to hit the streets in 2019. GM’s car is meant to drive itself with no assistance (hence no steering wheel) from the driver. This is the future – driverless vehicles.

Cargo Insurance in Action: Lessons Learned in the Wake of the Maersk Honam Fire

General Average: A Little-Known but Costly Risk

General Average (GA) is an overlooked and poorly understood risk that has significant consequences for cargo owners with shipments that move via ocean vessel. A General Average loss includes possible damage to a shipper’s cargo, delay to the shipment, and additional costs associated specifically with a GA incident. Complicating the matter further, the shipping line that declares the GA has the right to hold the shipper’s goods until acceptable security is posted on their behalf.

Recent ACE Fix May Cause More Entry Rejections

By: Matthew L. Zehner – Vice President, Surety Information & Analysis

For some time ACE was not properly matching the entry filed by the customs broker to the eSTB. It was only matching on 4 of the 5 data elements (not matching entry type). The entry should match exactly to the information filed on the bond using these five data elements:

  • Importer Number
  • Entry Number
  • Surety Code
  • Bond Amount
  • Entry Type

On June 27, CBP implemented the fix for this, which may lead to you experiencing a higher number of errors when you file your entries.
