Chicago, Illinois, USA, March 22, 2016. WiseTech Global, the technology company behind industry-leading global logistics solution CargoWise One, reports that US Customs Brokers using CargoWise One continue to lead early adoption of ACE functionality, most recently with APHIS Core filings.
Since the first ACE Cargo Release filing through CargoWise One in May of 2013, WiseTech Global has maintained a strong commitment to providing truly advanced ACE Customs entry processing for the industry. The company has been at the forefront of ACE development as new requirements are released, and its customers have been actively involved in live pilot filings with CBP as new functionality is implemented.
Customers are actively using ACE Cargo Release, with some reporting 90% or more of their filings completed in the ACE environment. In recent months, CargoWise One customers have been among the first brokers to participate in live pilot filings with CBP, including ATF, AMS, and APHIS.
Craig Seelig, Product Manager Customs and Compliance Americas for WiseTech Global comments, “WiseTech Global remains committed to being at the forefront of ACE and participating in all PGA pilots. We completed all of the original programming some time ago, and continue to encourage our clients to participate in all of the active PGA pilots. Many of our customers are doing so now, sending entries on their own, without the need for supervised PGA pilot calls.” WiseTech Global currently has clients in every active ACE PGA pilot, including:
- NHTSA - National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
- APHIS Lacey Act
- FDA (all programs)
- APHIS Core
- ATF Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives
- EPA Ozone-Depleting Substances
- EPA Toxic Substances Control Act
- EPA Vehicles and Engines
- EPA Pesticides
- National Marine Fisheries Service - Tuna, Tuna Products
- TTB - U.S. Department of Treasury, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau
- USDA - AMS - Agricultural Marketing Service
- USDA - FSIS - Food Safety and Inspection Service
“We are ready and waiting for CBP to begin some of the remaining pilots like DDTC and Fish and Wildlife,” Seelig continues. “Despite the recently announced delays in mandatory filing deadlines, customs brokers should still be aggressively moving forward with implementation of ACE. Early adoption allows brokers to take advantage of the benefits of ACE now, and prepare for a seamless transition when mandatory filing takes effect.”
