RICHMOND HILL, Ont. — CrimsonLogic (North America) Inc., an international IT solutions provider, has received accreditation from the United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to provide Web-based connectivity into the US Automated Commercial Environment.
The company says it is the first in Canada to receive such accreditation.
CrimsonLogic TradePalette, the company’s flagship logistics solution, has met CBP’s stringent requirements to comply with different testing scenarios to enable carriers to submit all message types (BRASS, PAPS, Section 321 etc.) to the US government agency through this Web service.
ACE allows carriers for the first time to submit pre-arrival information directly to CBP instead of relying on third parties to relay this information.
When ACE becomes mandatory at all border crossings in 2006, it will require submission of highway carrier manifests 1 hour or 30 minutes (for FAST shipments) to CBP in advance of the arrival of the truck at the US border or face being turned away.
CrimsonLogic provides connectivity options that will allow highway carriers to submit data directly from a web-based account or from their own in-house systems giving added efficiencies in submitting data to comply with this new and upcoming regulation.
CrimsonLogic has also recently implemented systems for the ocean carrier market for submission of manifest data to US Customs, Canada Border Services Agency and the Panama Canal authorities. The company also provides web-based solutions for all supply chain functions including procurement, inventory visibility, freight documentation and customs clearance.
