ATRI Research measures impact of ACE truck e-manifest system on trucking operations


Well-Known Member
Alexandria, VA — The American Transportation Research Institute (ATRI) has released research findings from an assessment of the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Truck e-Manifest’s impact on international trucking operations.

The ACE Truck e-Manifest – a trucking-specific interface of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) ACE electronic transaction system – is intended to address the need to facilitate international commerce while securing U.S. borders. Through use of this system, motor carriers are able to submit electronic versions of mandated paperwork in advance of a truck’s arrival at the border.

Survey and interview research conducted by ATRI revealed that physically crossing an international border into the United States is smoother when employing the ACE Truck e-Manifest, but start-up labor and equipment costs must be accommodated.
