How to create and track ACE In-Bond sequences in BorderConnect.

The ACE In-Bond Sequence Search Page is where the user can look up sequences of ACE In-Bond entry numbers assigned to them from CBP and entered into BorderConnect. Or create new ACE In-Bond sequences assigned to them by CBP into BorderConnect. There are many search options available. By default the search will display in-bond sequences chronologically. The most recent at the top.

BorderConnect's ACE In Bond Sequences feature is designed to automate some of the record keeping of carriers who file their own bonds in ACE eManifest, aka ACE In-Bonds. Using this feature will allow you to automatically:

  • Generate the In Bond Entry Number check digit.
  • Assign the next Entry Number in the sequence to each bond you create.
  • Keep track of which Entry Number was used when, and with which Shipment Control Number.
  • Generate a spreadsheet report detailing the usage of each Entry Number in the sequence.


The ACE In-Bond Sequences page can be accessed from the ACE eManifests menu option, or the Manage Data menu option. It will also be brought up when the user clicks on ACE eManifests on the top menu bar.

ACE Inbond Sequence Search Section


This section allows the user to search for In-Bond sequences entered into BorderConnect previously. It is also the page where the user can search by specific In-Bond entry numbers, or search by shipment control number to determine where specific In-Bond numbers were used. By default it will display In-Bond sequences in a chronological sequence, starting with the most recent sequence at the top. By altering the search options the user can search any In-Bond sequence ever created in the system, filtering by whatever criteria desired.
