Re-use the cargo information digitally

Import Consigment API

Overview

The Import Consignment API returns the consignment data as it is received in the CUSCAR messages from the Shipping agent. These CUSCAR messages are sent in to customs to declare the cargo discharged at a terminal.

You can re-use this cargo data digitally in your software and as such:

  • avoid retyping
  • reduce human errors
  • use harmonised data formats
  • avoid misinterpretations

All information is available digitally, based on unique identifiers of the cargo.

In order to retrieve the data from this NxtPort service, you need to provide a unique key (combination of BL number/Container number or BL number/Vessel stay), which identifies the cargo objects.

Quality assurance

Avoid human errors and increase the quality of your data.

Efficiency

Save time with pre-filled information in your logistic files. Information is available sooner and more complete.

Compliance

Your customs declarations will always be correct by basing it on the original CUSCAR data.
