UAE to implement Next Stage of ACI System Based on the CargoX Platform

UAE to establish Maritime Preload Cargo Information System

The United Arab Emirates will be introducing the Maritime Preload Cargo Information System (MPCI) for cargo bound to the country as part of its upcoming Advance Cargo Information system. The implementation will be overseen by the UAE, and is based on the CargoX Platform.

In order to improve cargo assessment and to facilitate legitimate trade and travel, UAE will establish the Maritime Preload Cargo Information System (MPCI).

The new system will contribute to higher border security and improve trade flows by providing the information on cargo before it reaches the port.

Cargo operators, both non-vessel operating common carriers and freight forwarders, will be required to submit documents electronically in order to carry out risk mitigation measures before cargo can be loaded onto ships bound to the UAE.

The system will be based on the CargoX Platform, which will be used for filing services to the UAE.

It will be available globally through a web application, as well as through API endpoints that can be integrated into Transportation Management Systems (TMS) or Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems of major shippers and other enterprises.

CargoX and the National Advance Information Center will develop a connection mechanism for linking economic operators with both UAE and CargoX accounts, in order to ensure seamless integration and data exchange between the two systems.

With international shipping and trade digitalising at a growing rate, many countries are looking to accelerate and streamline import procedures, while also improving security levels.

The Advance Cargo Information system that the UAE is establishing will be able to provide exactly that, and the CargoX Platform is an excellent solution for providing filing services.

Bojan Čekrlić, CEO of CargoX said: “The CargoX Platform is proving to be a versatile tool for electronic trade document processing in customs and logistics.

"Its processes for creating and transferring electronic trade documents and data are highly customisable and have proven their merit at several levels in four countries.”

Trials of the system are set to begin in May 2024 and last until June 2024, with plans for the system to become mandatory by 2025.
