Enhancements to ACE Truck Manifest

Phase 1

As the first of three phases to enhance truck manifest functionality in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), ACE Truck Manifest – Phase 1 will provide a modernized trade-facing truck manifest User Interface (UI), accessed through the ACE Secure Data Portal (ACE Portal), and streamlined functionalities that will improve user experience.

Ahead of the live deployment, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) deployed ACE Truck Manifest – Phase 1 enhancements to a testing environment on December 9, 2019 to familiarize users with the new ACE Truck Manifest UI. For more information, including instructions on accessing the testing environment, please review the “Testing Environment” section of the ACE Truck Manifest- Phase 1 Information Notice.

The ACE Truck Manifest – Phase 1 UI enhancements will become available for filing manifests in the ACE Portal on March 2, 2020, and for an interim period, users will have the option to file manifests in the ACE Portal using either the current or new UI. On June 22, 2020, CBP will turn off the current UI, and users will be required to use the new UI for ACE Portal manifest filings.  Until that time, while the legacy UI and the new UI will both be available, users are encouraged to utilize the new UI for filing truck manifests to prepare for the retirement of the legacy UI. Please see the timeline below for more details on the deployment of ACE Truck Manifest – Phase 1:
