Small Carrier Edition

Business for a small carrier is not easy today. Skyrocketing fuel prices continue to hit the bottom line, while intense competition necessitates utilizing a small carrier infrastructure to offer large carrier services – like seamlessly navigating today’s complex, ACE-driven border crossing environment.

SmartBorder has the solution for you. Our ACE application is designed from the ground up to specifically help truck carriers comply with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) eManifest requirements. It’s intuitive, logical interface and far-reaching functionality allow carriers of all sizes to increase productivity while meeting compliance requirements.

  • Intuitive and easy to use with customizable screens and fields
  • Accesses AES securely and quickly through our dedicated MQ Series fiber optic line
  • Permanently stores all transaction records and properties
  • Reduces redundant keying by automatically populating frequently used fields
  • Ad hoc and customizable reports
  • Data validation functionality ensures accurate data in every submission

If you’re a small carrier, our unique, innovative software model is tailor-made for you.

  • Remote hosting means you always access the same software version that even our largest, most dedicated customers are using.
  • Pay-per-use billing structure lets you utilize the newest technology in the most cost effective method.
  • Innovative, intuitive interface allows you to automatically populate common fields with recurring data.
  • Our ACE application is SaaS-based, meaning it’s hosted on the internet and accessed by you through any PC with an internet connection.
  • that is the extent of your IT investment – no additional hardware, no additional support resources or contracts.
  • Because our model is hosted remotely, all of our customers access the same version of the software.
  • Even though you’re a small carrier, you’ll be using the same cutting edge software with daily updates of any new CBP requirements as our largest, multinational freight forwarding clients.
  • Our billing model is based on pay-per-use. Following a low, initial licensing fee that covers getting you registered, trained and operational, you’re billed only a per-transaction fee.
  • As your business grows, SmartBorder will remain the most economical ACE solution available. Our applications are almost limitlessly scalable. And, with us, you pay one license fee, regardless of the number of users you have now or in the future.
  • What’s more, it’s all backed by world-class training and support. We know that small carriers often do not have the in-house knowledge base to fully optimize the ACE program, so we’re here for you with licensed brokers on staff and a full archive of support documents, CBP information and tutorial videos.

Using SmartBorder’s ACE solution doesn’t mean you have to abandon any relationship you have with a broker. In fact, it makes that partnership even more productive, providing real-time tracking of entries and submissions from each party. It’s all designed to efficiently and cost effectively get you the quickest possible answer to the single most important question you face every day: When can the driver leave?
