CEVA Logistics implements new US Customs Brokerage System

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

According to the announcement, CEVA initiated the move to introduce systems following a mandate from US Customs which requires all forwarders to file their entries using ACE, the Automated Commercial Environment, by the end of February this year. At that time, ACE is expected to become the primary system through which the trade community, including forwarders, must report all imports and exports.

CEVA’s Vice President Customs Brokerage & Import Services, Jane Pedersen Sorensen, said, “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.”

CEVA began work on its new link to ACE in 2014 when it selected Wise Tech Global and its CargoWise One program as the system with which to link its internal software such as CEVA Matrix OFS and Navigator, to provide a platform for users. The project has removed a number of legacy systems and synchronized all current IT interfaces and customer links.

CargoWise One operates on cloud-based technology.  Next, CEVA has announced plans to launch its customer portal which is expected to allow importers to manage their business with CEVA and achieve transparent Customs clearance information.
