Less than 2 weeks to transition to ACE e-manifest: rail & sea

September 29th is rapidly approaching.  As mentioned previously in this blog, after that date, ACE will be the only approved EDI for transitioning required advance rail and sea cargo information and ABI in-bond transactions to US Customs.  At that time, CBP will begin to decommission AMS for this functionality.

Most ocean and rail carriers and ABI in-bond filers have migrated to ACE.  If you have not, CBP urges you to meet with your Client representative to establish a migration date prior to September 29th.

  1. According to CBP’s website:

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today (October 1) announced that it successfully transferred 100 percent of impacted trade parties including ocean carriers, rail carriers and Automated Broker Interface software developers to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) e-Manifest: Rail and Sea. ACE now operates as the only CBP-approved electronic data interchange through which rail and sea manifests may be transmitted to the agency. The transition was completed a full 24 hours prior to the September 29 deadline.
