In a recent CSMS (Cargo Systems Messaging Service) from U.S. Customs, it was announced that 9% of ocean carriers have not begun program changes, testing and transition scheduling for the Automated Commercial Environment, known as ACE.
Effective September 29, 2012 ACE will be the ONLY approved EDI for transmitting required advance sea cargo information, including 24hr rule, ISF, stow plans and container status messages to U.S. Customs.
It can take up to twelve weeks and substantial resources to complete the programming and certification testing required. The countdown to September 29th has begun, will you be ready?
