Yet another delay for ABI air in-bond (QX/WX) functionality

US Customs has announced that the launch of ABI air in-bond functionality, delayed several times since 2009, has been postponed until at least July 2012.  The delay is a result of CBP’s dedication of resources to other priorities:  the recent deployment of  sea and rail manifest (M1) functionality, as well as the imminent deployment of the simplified entry project.

Customs emphasized that the July 2012 deployment timeframe is “very loose.”

CBP’s official notice is available here.
