CEVA Logistics Implements New US Customs Brokerage System

[ February 8, 2016   //   ]

CEVA Logistics has successfully completed the implementation of a new Customs brokerage system across its US operation.

CEVA initiated the move to introduce state-of-the-art systems following a mandate from US Customs that requires all forwarders to file their entries using ACE (the Automated Commercial Environment) by the end of February this year. At that time, ACE becomes the primary system through which the trade community – including forwarders – must report all imports and exports.

“With our start-up on November, 3rd, we were one of the first large brokers in the industry to comply with the new regulations immediately following Customs originally-mandated ACE implementation date of November 1st.  Our implementation with CargoWise One, offering full ACE functionality, is a major step forward for our business,” stated CEVA’s Vice President Customs Brokerage & Import Services, Jane Pedersen Sorensen.
