This is a development of AIS which enables trucks coming from or going to the EU to be handled by the system. Using AIS to obtain a GMR and/or a Safety and Security MRN offers benefits such as simplified processes, improved efficiency, higher interrogation of GVMS, better visibility and tracking of your RoRo movement. These advantages contribute to a smoother and more reliable experience when managing your RoRo movement.

AIS RoRo interfaces to:

  • GVMS (Goods Vehicle Movement System), with a full audit trail of transactions, status, and times
  • EU ICS system; this will be upgraded to ICS2 in due course.
  • GB S and S system (Safety and Security) as well as the NI variant.

The latest AIS and RoRo modules are free of charge for all CCS-UK customers. There is a small charge for obtaining a Safety and Security MRN, billed quarterly in arrears like your import and export declarations. The nominal costs involved can be found in your CCS-UK Terms and Conditions under Schedule 3.

AIS can be used as a standalone module via a web portal or can easily be integrated into your own system which we can support you with. Please contact us for more information.

Some of the many Benefits of using AIS and AIS RoRo:

  • A number of the handling agents offer a priority handling service to those freight forwarders and transport companies who pre-announce using AIS.

  • electronically interfaces to dnata, ASC cargo handling systems and also interfaces electronically to the WFS and Swissport kiosks which have or are being deployed at the receptions of their facilities. For Kiosk use, a pin is sent directly to the drivers mobile number which will need to be entered upon arrival at the kiosk, the pin is linked with the pre-announcement and if all data has been entered, priority service can be given.

  • supports the HAL proposals for using slots for handling trucks at the airport facilities and trials of this are underway providing significant reductions to waiting times for trucks.

  • the platform upon which many logistic improvements will be made in the delivery and collection of air cargo, including making the delivery and collection process paperless. Trials will be underway later in the year.

  • Data can be reused for many purposes once captured.

  • customers say the interface to GVMS provides many benefits, including visibility of all times of transactions and events on GVMS.

  • Data can be downloaded electronically.

  • Interfaces to the EU, UK and NI ICS and Safety and Security systems.
