LANGLEY, BC — Maddocks Systems Inc. has completed a series of enhancements to its TruckMate for Windows (TM4Win) enterprise package to help carriers easily manage new Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) requirements.
These new features offer transmission of the shipment information required by ACE directly from the Maddocks software solution.
“Maddocks Systems Inc. has always been keenly focused on the unique software requirements of transportation carriers that handle cross border shipments,” said Bob Maddocks, President and CEO of Maddocks Systems Inc.
“Providing the tools to manage ACE within the TruckMate system will help our clients maintain compliance, eliminate border waiting time and easily adapt to future cross border security requirements,” he said.
Under ACE, before reaching the border, trucks are required to submit an e-Manifest through the web-based ACE Secure Data Portal or through a Customs and Border Protection (CBP) approved Electronic Data Interchange. Also an e-Release, the electronic process by which CBP authorizes the release of goods from the carrier or warehouse to an importer will be required for shipments heading into the United States.
