What is FSN?

For warehouses operating in the US and receiving air cargo transferred to their facility on an airwaybill need to receive electronically from CBP electronic notification of the release or transfer of the cargo.

In cases where there is a hold on the cargo or an inspection is required by CBP, the FSN message will indicate to the warehouse to hold the cargo and segregate it waiting for the inspection to take place by CBP.

Participation by a warehouse in the Freight Status Notification System is under a larger CBP program known as Air AMS (Automated Manifest System) or ACE Air eManifest.

A warehouse is identified by CBP under a Facilities Information and Resources Management System (FIRMS) code.
The FSN Solution is available to the following warehouses:

2. Warehouses can receive FSN updates from CBP. Some of the most common FSN’s received from CBP is as follows:

Warehouses can check the CBP status of any AWB in their warehouse by conveniently submitting an FSQ (Freight Status Query) to CBP. An FSQ can be sent for any MAWB or HAWB including a request using one of the following request status codes:

● 01 Request for routing information
● 02 Request for current record status
● 03 Request for a nominated agent
● 04 Request for retransmission of FSN messages
● 05 Request for routing information, current record status, nominated agent, current AWB information on file
● 06 Request for HAWB information for supplied MAWB

After submission fo the FSQ, warehouses will receive back an FSC message in response to the FSQ message. Below are the possible FSC messages returned to the warehouse:
● 00 Record not on file
● 01 Record in Deleted status
● 02 Bill is split
● 03 Not authorized to receive information.
● 04 Bill incomplete – notifications not sent
● 05 No notifications sent to the requester
● 06 Notifications resent.
● 07 Bill status information follows……
● 08 Routing information follows……
● 09 Nominated agent.
● 10 Current Air Waybill information on file follows….

Yes, we understand that users are not always in front of their computers. That is why users can conveniently set up the delivery of email notifications for the FSN and FSC messages.

Error messages generated by CBP are sent back to the user.
