The National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) is rolling out a new information service called “ACE-lerate” to help companies involved in cross border transportation transition to the new Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) trade processing system developed by U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
The new service is specifically designed to help carriers and shippers deal with the E-Manifest port ACE, an automated electronic cargo manifest that carriers will be required to submit to CBP prior to their arrival at the border.
The new service is offered in three different versions:
Web offers a web-based interface allowing the user to easily store information as well as create shipment and trip templates.
ACE Fax allows users to fax their manifest information to the service center where their data will be reentered into an e-Manifest and sent to CBP.
ACE Integration allows use of in-house dispatch programs, for sending and receiving ACE data.
