RateScope, our new Ocean Rate and Contract Management tool, has been live and available for all members since June 19th. Located in the Contract section of our website, our Ocean Service contract options and rates are available for you in a quick, efficient and comprehensive display, replacing the need to open and interpret the different formats from multiple vendors. In addition, if SPOT and/or WEB rates are offered by a carrier in a specific trade lane, they are currently visible from the same platform.

Canada ACI: Similar to U.S.A. and Japan, from our website you will soon have the ability to transmit Advanced Commercial Importer security filings to Canadian Customs for ocean cargo destined for Canada.
Cargo Insurance: We will provide the ability to purchase and issue Cargo Insurance for each individual HBL through the AWS website. This is in addition to the Legal Liability and E&O coverage already provided under the AWS HBL.
AWS Website: In the near future, the AWS website will take on a fresh new look with an updated design. The site will have improved functionality with a modern feel that will increase efficiency and enhance the overall user experience.
More specific details will soon follow on these exciting new developments. As always, we thank you for your continued support.
