A & A offers manifest services for carriers to file their ACE & ACI manifests online, you have either the option of us filing it for you or you can file it yourself.
Please see the link below to our portal border connect, where you can find more information and pricing for our services as well as completing an application form.
Below is information on how to set up your shipment and where to send off paperwork to get your loads cleared.
Generally how it works is, you pickup your load and the shipper will provide you with all the paperwork that you need, you then need to send the paperwork to the broker who is clearing the load for you. If you are heading northbound(into Canada) you will send the paperwork to a Canadian broker, with a PARS sticker attached to that paperwork. If you are heading Southbound(into the USA) you will do the same thing, however you will attach a PAPS sticker and send the paperwork off to an American broker to clear your load. If you are unsure who the broker is you will find this information on either the Canada Customs paperwork or CBP paperwork or on the BOL that you received from the shipper. If for whatever reason there is no broker listed(or that customer/shipper has no broker), you may send the paperwork to us and we can clear the shipment for you.
You want to keep in mind to send the paperwork over to the broker as soon as you can, as it may take them up to 2-3 hours to actually clear your shipment. When heading into the USA, you must have and ACE Manifest done.
Once the broker has the paperwork, should you wish to have ACI’s completed then you need to send the exact same paperwork to A&A for a manifest to be done. Once we complete the manifest for you we e-mail you a copy and your driver should have a copy of this in his hands as he is coming to the border.
