Monthly collection of duties and fees by United States Customs and Border Protection has topped $5 billion as the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) monthly payment feature completes its second year of operation.
ACE is the next generation of CBP border processing technology designed to facilitate legitimate trade while enhancing border security.
“There has been significant growth in ACE monthly payments, with more than $3.5 billion collected this year alone, representing nearly a quarter of the total duties and fees collected by CBP,” said Louis Samenfink, director of CBP's cargo systems program office.
