Electronic filing of Import General Manifest (IGM), Export General Manifest (EGM), and Consolidated General Manifest (CGM) in advance is a mandatory requirement by the Indian Customs. It is the responsibility of Carrier and Consolidators to ensure timely submission of these manifests within the prescribed time limits. Failure to comply with these requirements may result in penalties imposed by Customs. To streamline this process, Hans Infomatic has developed an efficient software solution called AMS (Advance Manifest System). In this blog post, we will explore the features and benefits of AMS, making customs filing more convenient and hassle-free.
