Kale’s CAPELLA facilitates EDI messaging with ICES 1.5 for ICD Custodians
Mumbai, March 31, 2012: Kale is the first company to introduce thoroughly tested EDI messaging for Indian ICD custodian’s in compliance with ICES v.1.5 requirements. ICDs will now be able to exchange EDI messages from April 1st 2012 as per the e-Trade initiative, anchored by the Ministry of Commerce.
Indian Customs has mandated ICDs to send electronic messages to customs for Export Container Exit List (COCHE07) & Import container Arrival List (COCHI02). The ICD custodians will be required to receive EDI messages from Customs ICEGATE for IGM (CHCOI01), Shipping Bill (CHCOE01) and Acknowledgement for container arrival (CHCOI02A) electronically.
CAPELLA software equips ICDs with the ability to send and receive shipment information electronically using standard EDI message formats. With real-time information transfer, ICDs will experience faster customs clearance and save time & manual efforts in inputting the data on ICEGATE. The EDI messaging for ICES v 1.5 software is already live in case of Air Custodians. Kale’s GALAXY-Airport Cargo Management System is empowering the operations of leading custodians like Mumbai International Airport (MIAL), AISATS-Bangalore, Cochin International Airport Ltd (CIAL) and Air India among others, for EDI message exchange with Indian Customs at their respective Airports.
