ACE e-manifest to deploy in three more U.S. states

WASHINGTON — U.S. Customs’ ACE e-manifest program is finally moving on at all land border ports in Vermont, North Dakota, and New Hampshire.

As of July 12, 2007, all land border ports at those three states, where ACE has not yet been required, truck carriers will be required to file electronic manifests through the ACE Truck Manifest System. Outreach materials will be distributed at these ports as a reminder of the effective date.

CBP must electronically receive certain information regarding that cargo through a CBP-approved EDI system no later than 1 hour prior to the carrier’s reaching the first port of arrival. Truck carriers arriving with shipments qualified for FAST, must report within 30 minutes of arrival at the border.

Use of systems other than ACE will no longer satisfy advance electronic cargo information requirements at these ports.

The remaining ports at which the mandatory use of ACE will be phased in, listed in are:

All land border ports in the states of Idaho and Montana, Maine, and Minnesota.
