Check Out the Benefits of Filing ACE Entries in SmartBorder
Stay ahead of the curve
You can file formal (type 01), consumption (type 11), and Anti-Dumping Countervailing Duty (type 03) entries
The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is the commercial trade processing system being developed by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to facilitate trade while strengthening border security. ACE will eventually replace the current import processing system for CBP, the Automated Commercial System (ACS). More filers are electing to transition to ACE as CBP provides more benefits to the trade for choosing ACE over ACS for their entry filing.
Now SmartBorder allows you to file your entries through the current ACS system or the new ACE system. The benefits of filing ACE via SmartBorder include:
- File RLF for ADD/CVD (type 03) entries – no longer need to use an outport broker
- Electronic filing of census override - eliminates the paper filing
- Save time by filing post summary corrections online with the entry
CBP is continuously updating the ACE program and you can count on SmartBorder to offer you these new updates. You receive an updated version of SmartBorder everytime you login, there is no separate download required.
Begin filing ACE entry summaries now to take advantage of benefits and new capabilities only available to ACE filers. For more information on filing your ACE entries through SmartBorder, contact us today.
