Helping to End Paper-Based Export Manifest Processing in The United States

As part of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) initiative, electronic export functionality will help close the loop on the import-export process and bring more modernized standards to labor-intensive export manifest procedures. An electronic export manifest will also allow CBP to better identify potential security concerns earlier in the supply chain and correct administrative issues. This may help reduce potential delays in exports while speeding the flow of compliant shipments.

With over 30-years of domain expertise helping to streamline the regulatory complexities of global trade, the Descartes ACE Export Manifest™ solution can help carriers, freight forwarders and Non-Vessel Operating Common Carriers (NVOCCs) collect, prepare, validate and transmit the required manifest information to enable compliance. As a web-based, Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, the Descartes ACE Export Manifest solution delivers highly sophisticated capabilities at a fraction of the cost of in-house systems.

This advanced solution can also optionally integrate with existing back-office technology and scale to meet the demands of organizations, from small independent operations to global enterprises. Our web-based solution is offered by mode of transport including:

  • Descartes U.S. ACE Export Manifest™ for Air (in pilot mode)
  • Descartes U.S. ACE Export Manifest™ for Ocean (in pilot mode)
  • Descartes U.S. ACE Export Manifest™ for Rail (in pilot mode)
