Cargo status

The most common question asked by industry is 'What is the status of my cargo?'

The guides below will assist you in understanding the status of your cargo within the Integrated Cargo System (ICS).

Contact us

The Cargo Support enquiry form is the preferred method to contact us.

Ensure that you include as much information as possible to help us assist you.

Providing additional information

You might be asked to provide additional information, depending on the complexity of the problem.

For enquiries that cannot be immediately resolved, you might be required to provide a screen shot (also known as a screen dump) to assist our officers analysing your problem.

​More information on how to email a screenshot is available.

If your call cannot be completed in the first contact, you will be provided with a reference number.

Ask for this reference number if it is not automatically provided by the officer, and refer to these numbers for any further contact relating to your enquiry.

Digital certificate enquiries

If you have an enquiry that relates specifically to digital certificates, you will need to ensure that your queries are managed by Cargo Systems Support in an efficient and timely manner.

We have developed a Digital Certificate Enquiry form, which should be completed if you have questions that relate directly to your digital certificate/s.

You must also include screenshots relevant to your question.

Guides outlining which screenshots to provide, and how to create these screenshots are available below.

Providing the correct information to us will result in a timely response.

Urgent cargo clearance

To request an urgent cargo clearance, the cargo must meet one of the following criteria:

  • perishable goods will be damaged if subjected to delay
  • cargo requires immediate delivery (for example: urgent medical supplies, hazardous materials and livestock)
  • cargo might miss its carrier (export flights/vessels, truck booking system).
