Learn More About ACE

by Lynn Moyers on June 20, 2015

Want to know more about ACE, or not sure how or why it affects you? Here are some of the basics. ACE goes into effect November 1, 2015 and will affect any and all imports and exports coming into or out of the United States regardless of your size or industry. As one of Customs’ only beta testers in ACE, we urge you to attend to ensure you are prepared so that your shipments don’t get stuck in Customs!

  • Learn about new ACE requirements and how it impacts your business
  • Deployment dates
  • Sign up for a rare opportunity to bring your laptops and walk through a live demo of the ACE Portal (later this year)
  • Informal Q&A session amongst your peers in the industry
  • It’s free!

Not involved in International trade? Please join us at 4PM for Mark’s famous yakitori and other appetizers, happy hour, State of the Port address and a tour of Expeditors’ facility!
