PAPS Labels - Sets of 2

  • Model: PAPS-2

  • The Pre-Arrival Processing System (PAPS) is a U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection border cargo release method that utilizes bar codes to expedite the release of commercial shipments while still processing each shipment through Border Cargo Selectivity (BCS) and the Automated Targeting System (ATS). Each PAPS shipment requires a unique barcode label. The carrier attaches one label to the invoice and one label to the truck manifest while the merchandise is still in Canada. The barcode consists of the U.S. Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC), a consecutive number followed by a check digit. This information is then faxed ahead to the Customs broker in the U.S., who prepares a BCS entry in ACS. Upon the truck's arrival at the border, the Customs Inspector scans the barcode, which automatically retrieves the entry information from ACS. If no examination is required, the Inspector then releases the truck from the primary booth, reducing the carrier's wait time and easing congestion at the U.S. border.

    PAPS are are applied to the Inward Cargo Manifest (AF903).
