China Customs Advanced Manifest (CCAM)

​China Customs Regulation

The Chinese Customs requires that CSAV Group (the Carrier) submits information - in Chinese language - on all containerized cargoes destined to, or transshipped via, mainland China (Hong Kong and Taiwan are excepted), at least 24 hours prior loading at the port of loading on board a vessel destined to any Chinese port.

CSAV Group has established an average of 12 extra hours (see detailed chart below), to allow the data processing, data lodge and wait for the authorities' response.

The basic cargo information will be collected and summarized in the CSAV Group systems and processed by our offices in China.
