Recently, we discussed glitches in ACE that prevented carriers from seeing release messages for air cargo, even though the filers receive paperless releases in ACE. To address the issue, the Port of Los Angeles announced a paper-based workaround, which was extended through July 31, 2015.
While the overall air manifest environment is improving in performance, technical issues remain. Therefore, the Port of LA has extended the paper workaround until further notice, and has provided additional guidance for the trade.
