TORONTO, Ont. — TransCore has integrated Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) requirements into its Link OpsCenter system.
Canadian customers can now search for freight, import load information and prepare all necessary documentation (including ACE electronic manifests) through OpsCenter, which is part of TransCores 3sixty Operations Management system.
By integrating ACE requirements, TransCore eliminates the need to re-key all data. US Customs and Border Protection has already rolled ACE out at several border crossings in Washington and North Dakota. Full compliance at those crossings is expected by Apr. 26, 2007. TransCore points out 84% of Canadian exports are US-bound with 53% of them delivered by long-haul and LTL carriers, making ACE compliance very important for the Canadian trucking industry.
“As Canadian fleets scramble to respond to the operational impact of ACE, products that relieve the burden and automate a process suddenly become critical,” explained Claudia Milicevic, TransCore’s Link Logistics general manager. “TransCore condensed multiple processes across systems into a single step. Now, freight-matching customers can remain focused on moving freight not bogged down filling out forms.”
TransCore fast-tracked the integration of ACE into its OpsCenter system to ease the transition for carriers. Previously, the company only offered ACE compliance as a stand-alone product. For more information about OpsCenter, visit www.3sixty.ca/carriers/compliance-services/ace or call 800-263-6149.
