SCAC Carrier Codes

SCAC Carrier Codes

 

Overview

Every transportation movement for imports and exports involves at least one (1) carrier. Carrier codes are validated when transmitted as part of the entry transactions to ABI and must be accurate and valid. U.S. Customs maintains a list of SCAC carrier codes that should be used for entry transactions. Carrier codes are also validated against certain Modes of Transportation.

You should utilize the procedures found in the ABI Queries section, to perform a Carrier Codes Query via ABI. This is preferable to manually adding, changing or deleting carrier code records in CHB. The procedures to process the query results can be found in the ABI Data Exchange section and should be used to process the ABI query results.

CAUTION: The procedures described in this section should only be used in circumstances where access to ABI queries is temporarily not available and the need to edit the SCAC Carrier code file exists.
