Press Release Summary = MSR eCustoms receives CBP accreditation for its ACE e-Manifest solution

Press Release Body = Buffalo, New York June 15, 2005 The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has accredited MSR eCustoms to provide Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) e-Manifest services for carriers shipping goods to the United States by highway.

eCustoms is a leading provider of automated export and import management and compliance solutions in North America for almost 25 years, and the accreditation comes as CBP begins implementing a mandatory advance electronic cargo and conveyance
notification system to account for shipments entering the U.S. from Canada by highway.

The accreditation also comes just months after CBP approved eCustoms' QP/WP service for in-bond shipments via the U.S.

eCustoms' ACE e-Manifest solution is a web-based service that enables businesses to fully comply with mandatory advance electronic notification regulations. It meets strict CBP requirements for all electronic message types and submission times: 30 minutes before the truck reaches a U.S. Customs border checkpoint for FAST carriers and one hour for all others.

CBP is expected to fully implement ACE e-Manifest by next year. Non-compliance will result in fines of between US$5,000 and $10,000 as well as trucks being turned back at the border.

“We are right at the cutting edge of CBP’s highway plans. Our aim is to help highway carriers of all sizes to be able to comply with these mandatory regulations quickly and effectively,” said Jackson Wood, Corporate Business Manager at MSR eCustoms.
“More importantly, it means that carriers can submit all the relevant information to Customs within the required time period to ensure their trucks cross the border as smoothly as possible.”

eCustoms' ACE e-Manifest solution is part of the Visual Gateway™ Suite, a collection of powerful web-based solutions that enables businesses to comply with advance electronic notifications regulations. Visual Gateway™ also covers electronic notifications for air, marine and rail carriers.
