Trade Support Network

The Trade Support Network (TSN) provides a forum for the discussion of significant modernization and automation efforts with the trade community. There are approximately 300 members of the TSN that represent the entire breadth of the trade community, including trade associations, importers, exporters, brokers, carriers, sureties and others. Through the TSN committees, members provide information relating to specific business processes to CBP, including ACE requirement recommendations. These committees are formed and disbanded in parallel with the stages of ACE development. Many of the committees have formed subcommittees to concentrate expertise in a specific area, such as drawback, bonds, Foreign Trade Zones, etc. The current committees are:

  • Account Management
  • Entry
  • Export
  • International Trade Data System (ITDS)
  • Legal and Policy
  • Multi-Modal Manifest (MMM)
  • Revenue
  • Supply Chain Security
  • Transition

The general purpose of each committee is to identify legal, procedural and/or system issues and priorities specific to the business area and to submit user requirement recommendations where appropriate.  For more information, including how to become a member, email cbp.tradesupportnetwork@dhs.gov.
