ACE and Automated Systems

ACE Logo

The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) is the primary system through which the trade community reports imports and exports and the government determines admissibility. Through ACE as the Single Window, manual processes are streamlined and automated, paper is being eliminated, and the trade community is able to more easily and efficiently comply with U.S. laws and regulations.

Please visit ACE Transaction Details page for full details on ACE transmission requirements, and for details on Partner Government Agency efforts please see the PGA Integration section of our ACE Features page.
