TORONTO, Ont. — IT solutions provider, CrimsonLogic, today announced that it has been selected by Arcline (2000) Inc to provide connectivity into the US Automated Commercial Enviroment (ACE) for their current trucking dispatch software customers.
CrimsonLogic was the first Canadian organization to be accredited by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to comply with ACE requirements.
ACE, which will become mandatory for the trucking community at all 91 border crossings in 2006, is designed to provide national processing and tracking and is intended to be a key element for trade enforcement and in preventing cargo from becoming tools of terrorism. It will require submission of highway carrier manifests one hour or 30 minutes (for FAST shipments) to CBP in advance of the arrival of the truck at the border or face being turned away or fined.
Arcline (2000) Inc provides Dispatch Management Software solutions for trucking companies and freight brokers. It is crucial for Arcline (2000) Inc to meet the requirement to electronically file manifest details at least 1 hour before the arrival of the truck at the first port of entry going into the US.
“CrimsonLogic’s ACE system will definitely add on to the confidence of our customers by cutting down delays whilst ensuring efficiency: we are confident that this will strengthen our leadership in dispatch management software solutions,” says Michelle Dirracolo, President Arcline (2000) Inc.
Additionally, 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.
