CHAMP Cargosystems now US ACE-ready


CHAMP Cargosystems has announced that its Traxon Global Customs (TGC) Service is ready to support the new requirements mandated by US Custom & Border Protection (CBP) with respect to electronic air manifest filing.

Effective 1 May 2015 carriers flying to or via the US will need to file their pre-arrival declarations to the new Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) which replaces the legacy Air Automated Manifest System (Air- AMS). The transition from Air-AMS to ACE requires changes to business processes and CBP Air Manifest Interface Requirements (CAMIR) documentation, including greater levels of validation on the data submitted by the carriers.

Therefore it is critically important that data is correct at the time of filing to avoid non-compliance problems. ACE is designed to enhance border security while facilitating trade. By the end of 2016, ACE will become the Single Window – the primary system through which the trade community will report imports and exports and the government will determine admissibility. Electronic air manifest filing is part of the system.
