           Preferred Practices for e-Release

Consistent with FAST concept requirements:

      C-TPAT participation by carrier and importer
      Pre-registration of carrier, driver, and conveyance
      Pre-authorization of goods (e.g. FAST)
      Pre-filed manifest data
      Reduced data submission requirements (as few as 9
       elements)

           Benefits Offered to Preferred
           Participants (C-TPAT Carrier)

 Carrier (LTL) can be released at primary regardless of number of
  shipments
 Electronic manifest
 C4 code included in manifest data
 Electronic 321
 Electronic Instruments of International Traffic
 FAST shipments
 Web Portal manifest and query capability




                                                                6
            Automated Truck Manifest

 Provides means for submitting:
    Trip Data
      • Transponder #, port of entry, date/time, carrier & vehicle
      • Crew data (ID # for drivers and crew)
      • Conveyance data (ID #)
    Shipment data (Bill of lading, containers, commodities,
     quantity, HAZMAT info, etc.)
 Supports various formats: X12, CUSCAR, XML
 Web-portal manifest screens provided
 Allows for carrier notifications for arrival, release, holds, PGA
  actions, etc.
 Foundation for “multi-modal” manifest to be provided in later
  ACE increments

           ACE Carrier Accounts Registration
Carrier
     SCAC Code
     Carrier name and address
     Point of contact info
Drivers and Crew
     Name and address
     Commercial Drivers License (CDL)
     Nationality, birth date, etc.
Conveyances
     License plate #
     Registration info
     Type of conveyance
     Owner info
Equipment
     Container/Equipment ID
     Container/Equipment type           Note: This is not an all
     Container/Equipment description         inclusive list 9
       Release Process Re-engineering
New Inspector Screens in Primary
 Consolidation of BRASS, NCAP, PAPS, ACS, and
  CAFES into a single interface in Primary will
  alleviate complexity of current release process
 Automated workflow between Primary and
  Secondary will help to streamline inspection
  process


                 Automated Manifest w/Pre-registered Info
                  A single keypress in Primary will release multiple

         +          shipments on a truck
                  Pre-filed manifest and entry data tied to registered
                    identification data will expedite release decision

                                                                     10
         Enhanced Homeland Security

In support of Homeland Security:

    Pre-filed data provides early analysis capability
    Transponders on vehicles and ID-cards for drivers
     provide positive identification
    C-TPAT ensures supply chains are secure
