What is ACI/ACE eManifest?
The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) trade protection system used to facilitate legitimate trade and strengthen border security. Highway Carriers are required to send Cargo(Shipment- SCN) and Conveyance (Trip – CRN) details in electronic format to U.S. Customs before reaching the U.S. border. It requires Carriers to submit an electronic manifest to U.S. Customs one hour in advance (non-FAST shipments) or 30 minutes prior (FAST shipments) by the carrier arriving at the first U.S. Port of entry.
Advanced Commercial Information (ACI), on the other hand, is a Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) initiative that allows the trade community to electronically transmit their pre-arrival information to increase cross border trade efficiencies and to improve the protection of Canadian citizens through advanced cargo clearance and risk assessment screening.
