  About the Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS)

CSMS is a searchable database of messages that are of interest to ABI Filers, ACE Event Participants, ACE Portal Accounts, ACE Reports Users, Air Carriers, Ocean Carriers, Periodic Monthly Statement Participants, Rail Carriers and Truck Carriers. CSMS messages can be retrieved based on a combination of keywords and filtering by group. CSMS provides the added feature of cross referencing messages from the initial search result set with related message counterparts, sorting by publish date, title and CSMS number.

E-mail Notifications – CSMS is augmented by an e-mail subscription service which provides timely notification of new messages based on each or any combination of item groups. Use the CSMS subscription form to create a new subscription account or to change or cancel an existing account.

Please be advised that if you have subscribed to two or more groups and a message has been designated for distribution to more than one of the groups to which you have subscribed, you will be receiving duplicate messages.
