Advance Filing Rules (AFR) Service to Japanese Customs

Japan Customs Advance Filing Rules (AFR) require carriers or non-vessel operating common carriers (NVOCCs) to electronically submit cargo information on Japan-bound cargoes no later than 24 hours before vessels depart from the port of loading.

Tradelink's AFR Service facilitates carriers / NVOCCs in submitting advance manifest to Japan Customs in compliance with the customs regulations to avoid late filing penalties.
