G. O. Management Services was founded in 1993 as an approved pilot program to privatize the notification process and issuance of General Order numbers to eligible cargo in the Port's of Miami (5201) and Everglades (5203) and Miami International Airport (5206) port districts.
The area general order warehouses formed a coalition and employed General Order Management Services (GOMS) to do this processing.
For both U.S. Customs and the General Order warehouses, GOMS is the single official notification point for eligible G.O. cargo.
This is a free service to all carriers and the general public, and for CBP.
GOMS is NOT a G.O. Warehouse. After a GO number is issued and approved by CBP, your point of contact will be the G.O. Warehouse your cargo has been assigned to.
You can call us for that G.O. number, or the carrier should be able to see it in their AMS system. please click the link here or above for Miami G.O. Warehouses.
If you have your GO number, here's how to tell where your cargo is located.
Example of a G.O. # 2019 5201 P30100 or 2019 5106 M50100 or 201 5203 W40100
