The ACI Shipment Details Page is the main page of an ACI Shipment. It gives a complete overview of all the information for the shipment, as well as the ability to make changes and transmit it to CBSA.

The ACI Shipment Details Page can be accessed in the following ways:

  • This page will come up automatically upon clicking the Save Button on the Start New ACI Shipment Page.
  • By using the 'Back to ACI Shipment' link that is created to allow easy return to the most recently viewed shipment.
  • From the ACI Shipment Search Page by clicking 'View' on the ACI Shipment search result.

Main Function Buttons

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 ACI Shipment Page. This allows the user to change the Cargo Control Number, Ports of Entry and Release, and the ETA, among other options. Once the changes are made, clicking 'Save' will return the user to the ACI Shipment Details Page.
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.
Send to CBSA Button
Used to transmit ACI Shipment data to CBSA. Please note that normally the 'Send to CBSA' on the ACI eManifest Details Page should be used instead as it allows all Trip and Shipment data for the manifest to be sent at once. Moving the mouse over this button displays the following choices:
  • Send New Shipment Request: Transmits the shipment to CBSA. Should only be used when the shipment is not currently on file with CBSA. ie a draft or cancelled shipment.
  • Send Change Shipment Request: Transmits a change request for the shipment to CBSA. Used when the shipment is already on file and needs to be updated, or in correcting a rejected shipment. Can only be used prior to manifest being arrived by CBSA. after that, an amend is required instead.
  • Send Amendment to Shipment Request: Transmits an amend request for the shipment to CBSA. Used when the shipment is on an arrived manifest and needs to be updated. Can only be used once the manifest is arrived by CBSA. Before that, a change request is required instead. All amendment requests will the require the user to specify the reason for the amendment.
  • Send Cancel/Delete Request: Transmits a request to cancel the shipment to CBSA. Used the shipment is already on file and needs to be cancelled in order to allow changes to the cargo control number, or simply because the freight is no longer expected to cross the border. Please note that if the shipment is attached to a manifest that is also is on file with CBSA it will not be possible to cancel the shipment only, a cancel will need to be sent for the manifest as well.
Once the selection is made the user will be asked to confirm the transmission, and the request will be sent to CBSA. If there were any errors on the manifest to prevent the transmission, the user would be notified at this time.
Set Status Button
Used to correct the Current Status of the shipment when it is believed to be incorrect. Because the system updates the Current Status automatically based on CBSA responses, this feature should seldom if ever be used. Please note the Set Status Button cannot be used to make changes to a shipment in the CBSA system. eg. setting the status to Cancelled will not cancel a shipment with CBSA. A cancel request would be used instead.
Moving the mouse over this button displays the choice between all available statuses for an ACI eManifest. Once the selection is made the user will be asked to confirm the selection, and the Current Status will be updated.
Back to ACI eManifest Button
Used to return to the ACI eManifest 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.
Change Trip / Add Trip
Used to select which manifest the shipment is attached to. Will be displayed as Change Trip if the shipment is already attached to a manifest, or as Add Trip if the shipment is Unassociated. 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 ACI eManifest Page. If the manifest already exists but the trip number needs to be edited that should be done from the Edit ACI eManifest Page. This field cannot be used to create new manifests or change the trip numbers of existing manifests.
