SIMPLIFY: Shipping loads across the border in an ACE environment will be simpler thanks to the partnership between Trans+Plus and CrimsonLogic.
GUELPH, Ont. – Trans+Plus Systems Corp. has announced that it is currently enhancing Fleet Manager Professional to provide an automatically generated e-manifest solution to help customers easily manage ACE (Automated Commercial Environment) requirements and comply with the new regulations set by the United States Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP).
“Partnering with CrimsonLogic to develop a simplified method for carriers to provide automated advance manifest information prior to their arrival into the U.S., just made sense,” said Dave Wright, president of Trans+Plus.
“They were the first in Canada to be fully accredited by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP) to provide connectivity into the U.S. Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).”
ACE regulations will become mandatory in the early part of this year and will require carriers crossing into the U.S. through Canada or Mexico to submit pre-notification of shipment details to CBP prior to arriving at the border.
By entering into an agreement with CrimsonLogic, Trans+Plus customers using Fleet Manager Professional will be able to directly send an e-manifest to CBP without leaving Fleet Manager Professional, says the company.
Using detailed information already gathered within the software, Fleet Manager Professional will automatically generate the e-manifest which is then sent via an approved electronic transmission to U.S. Customs.
“We’ve been gearing up for ACE for quite some time now. We feel it’s our duty to guide our customers and provide the tools they need to be more efficient, save money and be compliant. When ACE becomes mandatory, we want to make sure all of our customers have signed up, are tested and are ready to go,” added Wright.
