ACE Air eManifest

ACE (Automated Commercial Environment) is the name of the CBP (Customs & Border Protection) platform to process Air eManifest submissions from air carriers, freight forwarders, warehouses, and customs brokers.

Air carriers must submit Cargo data at the master level. Freight Forwarders or warehouses have the option to directly submit the ACE Ocean eManifest HBL data to CBP. HBL data submitted to bye airline will usually incur a fee.

Section 321 Air Shipments

International goods valued $800 or less can enter the US duty-free. Some international businesses prefer to clear section 321 shipments by utilizing the below process:
  • ABI filer or CFS/ECCF with FIRMS code sends Section 321 HAWB data at least 4 hours before arrival to comply with the Trade Act
  • Email request to local CBP port requesting the release of shipments in CFS
  • CBP conducts inspection. Packages placed on hold visible in the portal
  • Release status (1C) is updated in the portal
