ACE Ocean eManifest

ACE (Automated Commercial Environment) is the name of the CBP (Customs & Border Protection) platform to process AMS Ocean eManifest submissions from ocean carriers, freight forwarders, port authorities, and terminal operators.

Ocean carriers must submit Cargo data at the master level. Freight Forwarders have the option to directly submit the ACE Ocean eManifest HBL data to CBP or HBL data can be submitted by the ocean carrier usually at a fee.

Secondary Notify Parties can also use the AMS Ocean eManifest to receive updates on B/L’s they have been nominated to receive updates for.

ISF (Importer Security Filing) data also knows as “10+2” can also be incorporated into the ACE Ocean eManifest submission as part of a unified filing.

Section 321 eCommerce Ocean Shipments

International goods valued $800 or less can enter the US duty-free. Growing number of international businesses are moving the Section 321 cargo via ocean instead of air due to the following benefits:

● It allows businesses to avoid rising air freight rates
● Logistic companies are offering more ocean express shipping options (especially from Asia to any location in North America)
● It is more cost-effective service
● It allows businesses to avoid airport congestion
