Import Consignment Data API

Find this API in the Market

Re-use the information about the cargo digitally in your own software. Avoid retyping, human errors, wrong formats and misinterpretations. All information is available digitally, based on unique identifiers of the cargo.

CUSCAR messages are sent by the ship's agent to the customs to declare the goods that will have to be discharged from the vessel in the port of call. The information in the message defines the cargo in full detail. Today, this information is passed through the supply chain point-to-point, mostly unstructured and in some cases not even digital.

The aim of the Import Consignment Data API is to expose the information that is available in the CUSCAR messages, so it can be re-used digitally by any party dealing with the cargo. With a key based on the BL number, the data can be gathered from the NxtPort platform and re-used in any application, eliminating retyping, human errors, mistakes in structure and semantics, and so on.
