Shippers entering Egypt will begin using Canada’s ACI cargo screening system

Shipping companies will soon be required to supply more detailed cargo data to customs officials prior to arriving in Egyptian ports, Finance Minister Mohamed Maait said during a meeting with Prime Minister Moustafa Madbouly yesterday to review the ministry’s proposed customs procedures. Shippers will begin using a system known as Advance Commercial Information (ACI), a risk management tool introduced by the Canada Border Service Agency in 2004. The system is designed to identify potential health, safety, and security threats posed by inbound shipments.
