Cargo screening matches barest info with hundreds of millions of data
A NEW cargo screening system using only the barest manifest and waybill data to identify prohibited, hazardous, or dual-use goods, had been launched by Amber Road, of East Rutherford, New Jersey
A NEW cargo screening system using only the barest manifest and waybill data to identify prohibited, hazardous, or dual-use goods, had been launched by Amber Road, of East Rutherford, New Jersey.
With hundreds of millions of screens per day against over 600 lists, the solution uses advanced computational linguistics algorithms to provide accuracy with few false positives.
'We have solved a critical problem by combining our advanced technologies with our vast experience in linking software with content,' said CEO Jim Preuninger.
'The solution is ideal for global logistics providers who must aggregate and accurately screen a high volume of shipments from multiple providers to comply with increasingly stringent laws,' said a company statement.
Customs authorities are increasingly monitoring the effectiveness of logistics providers' cargo screening processes to determine compliance, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
There are numerous examples of companies that use only 'exact matching' screening algorithms on names and addresses who have been cited for failing to meet the standard of reasonable care and have been penalised with escalating fines, said the Amber Road statement.
Said Amber Road product chief Nathan Pieri: 'The market has been devoid of tools to meet more stringent examinations. With our new Carrier Cargo Screening Solution, we have developed new content libraries and advanced algorithms to offer a robust supply chain risk platform ideally suited for global logistics providers.'
New York-listed Amber Road is an independent US software company, specialising in global trade management systems.
