Webinar: 1.5 CCS Credits
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has been building the Automated Commercial Environment for 10 years. Despite the fact that numerous functionalities are already operational in ACE, there has been skepticism that the system would ever be fully implemented. Now that CBP has established November 1, 2015, as the date by which entries and entry summaries must be filed in ACE, there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. This webinar will cover how importers and exporters can use existing and future ACE features to modernize their operations and lower costs.
