As mentioned in our recent blog post, September 29 is the date by which filers must use ACE to transmit required e-manifest information for ocean and rail cargo. That leaves less than 4 months for the transition. And since it can take up to 12 weeks to complete programming and receive US Customs’ certification, the clock is ticking for the 12% of ocean carriers and 53% of ABI software developers who are not yet testing ACE rail and sea manifest. (100% of rail carriers are either in production or currently testing).
