The Standard Carrier Alpha Code (SCAC) is a unique letter code used to identify Sea & Air Freight Forwarders & Vessels (transportation
companies). SCACs are used in the Prior Notice System Interface (PNSI) used for tracking all imported shipment.
SCACs are required when doing business with all U.S. Government agencies and with many commercial shippers including.
The United States Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has mandated the use of the SCAC for their Automated Commercial
Environment (ACE), Automated Manifest (AMS) and Pre-Arrival Processing (PAPS) Systems.
But not limited to, those in the automobile, petroleum, forest products, and chemical industries as well as suppliers to retail businesses
and carriers engaged in railroad piggyback trailer and ocean container drayage. Carriers who use the Uniform Intermodal Interchange
Facilities Access Agreement (UIIA) are required to maintain a valid SCAC. The petroleum industry uses SCACs in their integrated software
programs that expedite the movement of bills of lading, pipeline tickets, product transfer orders, and inventory data. Many commercial
shippers and receivers utilize SCACs in their freight bill audit and payment systems.
Certain groups of SCACs are reserved for specific purposes. Codes ending with the letter "U" are reserved for the identification of freight
containers. Codes ending with the letter "X" are reserved for the identification of privately owned railroad cars. Codes ending with the letter
"Z" are reserved for the identification of truck chassis and trailers used in intermodal service.
