The Main Function Buttons are located near the top of the page. They allow the user to alter main information for the shipment.

Edit Button
Brings the user to the Edit ACE Shipment Page. This allows the user to change the Shipment Control Number among other options. Once the changes are made, clicking 'Save' will return the user to the ACE Shipment Details Page.
Delete Button
Deletes the ACE shipment out of BorderConnect. It is important to note that using this button will not cancel the shipment with CBP! If it is on file, it is important to cancel the manifest with CBP before using this button.
Detach Button
Used to remove the shipment from the manifest it is attached to. The shipment will remain in BorderConnect as an Unassociated Shipment, which will allow it to be reassigned to a manifest later. This button only appears when the shipment is attached to a manifest.
Shipment Only Send to CBP Button
Used to transmit ACE Shipment data to CBP. Please note that normally only the 'Send to CBP' on the ACE Manifest Details Page should be used instead as it allows all Trip and Shipment data for the manifest to be sent at once. This button is only for advanced users. Moving the mouse over this button displays the following choices:
  • Send Unassociated Shipment: Transmits the shipment to CBP as unassociated. i.e. not linked to a manifest.
  • Cancel Shipment Message: Transmits a request to cancel the shipment to CBP. Will only cancel the shipment, not the manifest. If the shipment is attached to a manifest in CBP's system, this will remove it from the manifest.
  • Attach Shipment Message: Transmits a request to link the shipment to a manifest in CBP's system. In order to be successful both the shipment and the manifest must already be on file in CBP's system.
Once the selection is made the user will be asked to confirm the transmission, and the request will be sent to CBP. If there were any errors on the manifest to prevent the transmission, the user would be notified at this time.
Back to ACI eManifest Button
Used to return to the ACE Manifest Details Page of the manifest that the shipment is attached to. Typically used when the user has finished entering all the information for the shipment. Will only appear if the shipment is attached to a manifest.
Quick Attach Trip
Used to select which manifest the shipment is attached to. By typing the trip number of the desired manifest it will come up for the user to select. Clicking on it or pressing enter will attach the shipment to the selected manifest.
Please note that in order to select it, the desired manifest must already exist in BorderConnect. If the manifest still needs to be created it should first be done from the Start New ACE Manifest Page. If the manifest already exists but the trip number needs to be edited that should be done from the Edit ACE eManifest Page. This field cannot be used to create new manifests or change the trip numbers of existing manifests.
