CBP’s Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) full of useful information

Expanding access to what was once only available to those select few who had access to an ABI system, US Customs (CBP) has now created a free, searchable database of messages that are of interest to many:  ABI Filers, ACE Event Participants, ACE Portal Accounts, ACE Reports Users, Air Carriers, Ocean Carriers, Periodic Monthly Statement Participants, Rail Carriers and Truck Carriers.

Not only that, CPB has launched an e-mail subscription service which provides timely notification of new messages based on each or any combination of item groups.  Groups consist of  Automated Broker Interface, ACE Outreach Events, ACE Portal Accounts, ACE Reports, Air Manifest, Cuentas en el Portal de ACE (Spanish), Ocean Manifest, Rail Manifest, Transportistas de Camion (Spanish) and Truck Manifest.

Use the CBP’s CSMS subscription form to select your area of interest and get your name added to the list. 

Happy Reading!
