CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Oct 18, 2016) - Over the course of the last 6 months, both the Trade and US Customs & Border Protection (CBP) have focused on and expended major effort to get importers ready to file their Partner Government Agency (PGA) data in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). While this focus was necessary, the other side of the equation must also be considered as well -- exports. Integration Point has not only been at the forefront of the movement to ACE for importers, but also has invested in making sure that Export Management is ready for its customers when the time comes.
