How to participate as Import Consignment data user?

Due to the end-of-life status of Import Consignment, we currently offer limited support on the onboarding process.

As a data provider

As a shipping agent you can participate to the NxtPort use case by providing your CUSCAR messages. Doing so enables your customers and subcontractors to look up the consignment info and reuse it digitally. This can be a commercial advantage, and could save you time answering questions about your CUSCAR content.

To start sharing your CUSCAR messages, contact NxtPort. We make it easy for you to get your data on the platform and start sharing it through the API.

You always keep full ownership of your data and stay in control of who gets access, through the NxtPort Console. We provide a full audit trail of who used your data, and when.

As a data user

Possible users of this service are customs brokers/agents, forwarders and importers.

To use this access-controlled API:
