CBP Technical teams within the agency will monitor the system 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In addition, from July 22 - 29, an operations center has been staffed with experts from around the country to help quickly resolve any issues that may arise during the transition.
CBP is on track, together with trade and Partner Government Agency stakeholders, to deliver all core trade processing capabilities by the end of 2016 in line with President Barack Obama’s 2014 Executive Order on Streamlining the Export/Import Process for America's Businesses.
This deployment completes the sixth of seven major ACE deployments as part of the transition of core trade processing from ACS to ACE. The next milestone in the transition is August 27 when filers will be required to file all electronic protests in ACE.
