In a bid to crack down on the trafficking of illegal narcotics to the United States through mail, The STOP (The Synthetics Trafficking and Overdose Protection) Act will be enacted from 2021.

With effect from January 1st 2021, all registered packages or packets destined for the US must have their advance electronic data (AED) submitted prior to shipment. The AED will require information such as the sender's name and address, recipient's full name and address, and the weight, value and contents of the package to be provided. It will then be relayed to the US Postal Service (USPS) electronically by the originating postal operator.

If you are our customer, do not worry! Because the Ship&co platform is linked to the Japan Post system, there is nothing to change on your end. Data provided for your shipments to the United States through Ship&co are in good standing with these new regulations.

Are you still filling in your shipping labels by hand, or printing them on a dot matrix printer? Now is the time to upgrade! Ship&co can save you lots of time and trouble, leaving you with more time and energy to focus on the things that matter.

Our cloud-based interface with real-time store synchronization means that you no longer have to do the heavy lifting. Let us do the hard work for you!
