U.S. Customs and Border Protection has completed installations of the Automated Commercial Environment in all land border ports in Vermont. ACE is the commercial trade processing system designed to enhance border security and expedite legitimate trade.

The use of ACE to file electronic manifests will be required beginning Jan. 25 for truck carriers entering the United States through all points of entry in the states of Washington and Arizona and through several parts of North Dakota. Eventually, all land border ports will be required to transmit advance electronic truck cargo information through ACE.

In Vermont, ACE is operating at the ports of Highgate Springs, Alburg Springs, Alburg, Morse Line, Richford, West Berkshire, East Richford, Pinnacle, Derby Line (Rt 5), Derby Line (Interstate 91), North Troy, Norton, Canaan and Beecher Falls. A total of 54 ports across the country currently are using ACE.
