Pacific Highway Construction – Complete

CBP has completed the reconstruction of the truck crossing at the port of Blaine, Washington.  Three (3) lanes are currently open and all appears to be flowing well.  Our hats go off to our friends at U.S. Customs during the reconstruction phase, they did a wonderful job notifying the public of the process and doing what they could to mitigate delays. If you want to monitor port of entry delay times you can still make reference to CBP’s Border Wait Times page.    Read More

ACE E-Manifest Disconnect

At this time our office would like to post a few facts about an ongoing issue associated with the ACE E-Manifest transmissions and their frequent failure to link or connect to a brokers import entry.  If you haven’t noticed, you’re lucky as this has been an ongoing problem for four or five months now, and has become more prevalent following the full deployment of ‘core’ ACE at the end of August 2016. On October 11th, Steve Sanders was in Washington, DC meeting with the U.S. Northern Border Customs Brokers Association and U.S. Customs (CBP).  Jim Byrum with CBP commented directly on the apparent and continuing disconnect between the carriers ACE E-Manifest (be it the ACE Portal or other vendor applications that interface to ACE) and the U.S. Customs brokers entry. CBP, through Jim Byrum made it very clear that the chronic disconnect stems from the legacy ACE E-Manifest system which is the oldest functioning modules of ACE.  Jim reported that the ACE E-Manifest system is having all kinds of bugs, issues and problems and needs to be re-written.  Unfortunately the re-write will not happen until all of the “core” modules of ACE are on line and functioning.  No clear date was provided for the ACE E-Manifest re-write but it was very clear that any attempt at re-writting the ACE E-Manifest module will not occure until mid to late 2017. Note to the carriers.  If you are not seeing your “1C” release being returned to you and you want... Read More
