On March 27, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) communicated that they
were experiencing communication issues which impacted system processing and
response messaging going to the customs brokerage and trade community. This may
have resulted in your drivers experiencing some service delays. CBP indicates
that their issues have now been resolved, and they have resumed regular
message: The ACE EDI processing issue, announced in CSMS# 17-000172 on Monday
3/27/2017, was resolved at approximately 3:15 pm Eastern. The ACE messages
received during the outage were queued and are being processed now. The ABI
backlog is expected to take less than an hour to process. The Import Manifest
data backlog is expected to take 3 hours to process.
This CBP downtime caused a backlog of entries to be processed and drivers
experienced service delays for several hours from noon until late in the
We’d like to assure you that we are doing everything we can to minimize any
impact CBP’s system outage may have on your business.
