In a Cargo Service Message issued Nov. 30, U.S. Customs and Border Protection provided a “friendly reminder” to the trade, drawing attention to the fact that nine new “data universes” (and associated reports) are now available through the Automated Commercial Environment’s Reports application.
CBP initially began the process of transitioning Importer Trade Activity (ITRAC) data to ACE Reports in 2018 with the aim of providing importers and other stakeholders with quicker, on-demand access to their data. The following year, several new reports were first deployed in the ITRAC workspace: Bond, Cargo Release, Entry Summary, and Reconciliation.
Subsequently, CBP has continued its phased approach to transitioning, which involves upgrading additional data universes and reports “gradually and sequentially either individually, or in small groups,” to ensure that ACE Reports maintains data confidentiality, integrity, and availability throughout the implementation of upgrades.
The agency has also made a number of performance enhancements along the way that it says “should decrease the time it takes to run ACE reports and reduce the need for manual workarounds that are currently needed to run large data queries.”
