ACE In Bond Sequences (ACE Manifest / U.S. In-Bond Manager)
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 eManifests or file QP In-Bonds using BorderConnect U.S. In-Bond Manager. 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/In-Bond Sequences page can be accessed from the ACE eManifests menu option, the Manage Data menu option or from the U.S. In-Bonds menu option and selecting 'In-Bond Sequences'.
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.
