> The courier agent submits the Export Form to Customs if it is a Simplified AFIP (Federal Administration of Public Revenue) Form. Customs assigns a number to the form, which is thus constituted into a "Policy." The courier agent enters the goods with an air waybill number assigned by the airline in charge of the transportation of the cargo, with an internal air waybill number or by simply highlighting the destination. In this last case, the courier agent that acts as freight forwarder consolidates all of the cargo entered in this way and prepares an air waybill. In the presence of the Customs agent, the cargo is then unloaded. The entire cargo load undergoes an X-ray inspection. Shipments that do not contain documentation are verified.
> The Release Policy is submitted to TCA, where we proceed to check the number of packages and their weight. We draw up a form called "Export Courier Entry," which is signed by TCA and the courier agent, and we enter it into the computer system.
The cargo is stored according to air waybill number or destination, in the event that the cargo is to be consolidated.
> The airline enters the original policies received into its system.
It then prints the Flight Manifest along with the courier air waybills that will be picked up by the courier’s agents who then submits it to Customs for its release. The air waybills covered in the Manifest are entered into the MARIA system and the sacks are picked up at the export courier warehouse.
TCA Staff issue an exit order, which is delivered to the companies operating on the ramp.
The airline records the exit of the cargo on the MARIA system.
Ramp services pick up the sacks and take them to the runway.
