The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is now a reality introduced by CBP to expedite border crossings while reducing paperwork and improving security. While it does require freight carriers to shoulder additional responsibility in relaying timely and accurate information, there’s also the potential to decrease wait times and increase customer satisfaction – but only for those carriers with the right tools to stay organized and prepared.
That is where SmartBorder’s SaaS-based ACE application comes in. We realized right from the onset that meeting Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) stringent, new requirements would strain the existing resources and knowledge base of many carriers and brokers. And, given that we virtually wrote the book on efficient, cost effective ABI applications, it was natural for us to design an application that would help users achieve ACE compliance while adhering to our platform-wide core values.
- Intuitive and easy to use
- Numerous data validation and accuracy checks
- Minimal internal IT support or investment
It all adds up to allowing you to handle the additional workload efficiently and cost effectively without additional resources or significant expenditure. And it’s all backed by our industry leading training and support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It’s no wonder all sizes of freight carriers and brokers across the country rely on us to help them adapt to new obligations.

SmartBorder ACE eManifest Features
No need for repeat keying
Data maintenance modules such as the Crew, Truck and Trailer pick lists have transformed a once time-consuming process of redundant keying into a fast process of “pick and click”. You can set up your SmartBorder system with all the necessary information prior to creating any trips, and reuse that data as needed.
Get it right the first time
Hundreds of data checks provide instantaneous error checking in a way that surpasses even the abilities of our flagship brokerage application. This means that even more keying errors are caught before sending information to CBP. Our innovative validation tool allows the user to instantly navigate directly to the field that is in question.
Real-time feeds give the user an immediate view of the status of a current trip or shipment without having to navigate through several screens.
