CargoX Platform ACI air - testing starts 15 May 2022

May 13, 2022, 10:30 a.m.

Dear CargoX Platform user,

Please allow us to inform you that the Egyptian Government is starting to implement the Advance Cargo Information (ACI) declaration for air-borne cargo shipments soon. The ACI declaration is an electronic document that provides to the Egyptian governmental agencies transparency, improved process governance and better trade facilitation. The system complements the efforts made to implement the same system for sea-borne cargo shipments, which started in October 2021.

CargoX and the Government of Egypt’s NAFEZA will start testing the ACI Air declaration on 15 May 2022. The process will become mandatory on 1 October 2022.

The ACI for air-borne cargo will be the gateway to exporting products to Egypt by air. It will allow you to pre-lodge shipment documents and data electronically in a secure and prompt manner, so that the customs and OGA procedures on the Egyptian side may be accomplished prior to your shipment arrival at the Egyptian airport.

For customers exporting to Egypt by air, this will become a unified channel. You will save effort, time and money, and reduce risk of delays. The ACI system will expedite your shipment clearance, and it will also bring you one step closer to the digital trade finance platform upon which Egypt is currently working.
