Final ACE Truck Manifest Deployments Set for Summer 2022

Transport Truck (Bulk Commodity Trailer)

Trade Update • June 6, 2021

CBP will be rolling out their final enhancement and modernization deployments via the second and third phases of the Automated Commercial Environment’s truck manifest during the summer months of 2022.

Enhancement and Modernization – Phases 2 & 3

ACE Truck Manifest Phase 2 focused on enhancing the CBP user interface (UI) for the primary and secondary processing of truck manifests. As part of this deployment, previously relaxed validations in the legacy truck manifest application are now supported in the enhanced application known as Truck Manifest Modernization (TMM) and may result in errors for users. To prepare for the upcoming deployments and avoid possible errors, please review the details on validations in the Truck Manifest X.12 – 309 and EDIFACT CUSCAR EDI implementation guides found at here.

Previous/upcoming locations and deployment dates of Phase 2 & 3 of Truck Manifest Modernization:

  • Brownsville – January 31
  • Buffalo – March 13
  • Laredo – April 3
  • Blaine – April 24
  • Detroit – May 15
  • Remaining Southern Ports – June 5
  • Remaining deployment on Northern Ports is set to take place on June 26, 2022.
  • Retirement of legacy truck manifest application (R4) will occur on June 20, 2022.

Phase 3 of enhancements is set for July 11, 2022 and will finalize the modernization of ACE truck manifest functionality and will complete all backend services used for EDI processing. Trade users will begin seeing new messaging regarding modifications to Crew, Vehicle, Cargo and Seals.
