The article offers a look at issues relating to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. On the works for eight years, ACE is expected to cost taxpayers an estimated $3 billion and it will be the foundation of the agency's trade facilitation and security. ACE is considered a significant part of international trade since through this, importers can pay duties monthly and truckers will be able to file electronic manifest data.
