WASHINGTON, DC — Carriers crossing the border in Michigan and New York will be required to provide advance cargo information using the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system by tomorrow.
The more information we have in advance, the more we can protect the homeland and facilitate commerce, said Lou Samenfink, executive director for the US Custom and Border Protections Cargo Systems Program Office. With e-manifests, CBP officers are able to pre-screen trucks and shipments, and dedicate more time to inspecting suspicious cargo without delaying the border crossings of legitimate carriers.
