Ocean Automated Commercial Environment (Ocean ACE)
– Customs and Security Filings-

 ACE is the United States’ modernized commercial trade processing system designed to further automate trade processes. The initiative is part of an overall multi-year, multi-phase improvement effort to help create a centralized system-of-record through which the U.S. government will track, control and manage information related to the import and export of goods.

As part of this initiative, the Automated Commercial Environment is now the only method of transmitting required advance manifest information for ocean cargo to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Automated Commercial System (ACS) ocean AMS filings via EDI are no longer accepted.

The Descartes Ocean ACE™ solution is M1-enabled, certified and approved by CBP. Our solutions help customers move toward regulatory compliance through a flexible range of options. Descartes’ web- or EDI- based ocean ACE software adapts to the needs of the user, whether they are a carrier, shipper, freight forwarder or non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCCs).

We also offer services that can securely transmit ocean ACE filing data between in-house systems via an encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection. Our advanced cargo security filing software products can also optionally integrate with Descartes Air AMS service to form a comprehensive, multimodal filing solution for those clients with both air and ocean shipments entering the U.S.

The web-based service automatically adjusts its functions, user screens, and data validations to match the type of user and service level. This advanced solution can serve as a standalone product to compliment your existing systems, or as a fully-integrated component of existing Descartes solutions.
