Kewill and Deringer Achieve Another Industry-First

Kewill announced that A.N. Deringer, Inc., one of the largest, privately held Customs Brokers in North America, is the first to have filed a Customs Entry through US Customs and Border Protection’s Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), using’ Kewill’s innovative solution.

Kewill’s automated solution accelerates the clearance process of imports by facilitating the submission of Entry Summary data directly through ACE. This new technology provides Deringer with a distinct competitive advantage by allowing them to meet the evolving requirements of CBP and the needs of clients.

Jake Holzscheiter, President and CEO of Deringer commented, ‘In our 90 years, Deringer has been a pioneer for many Customs initiatives, and having Kewill as a strategic partner allows us to continue this heritage. As an early adopter of entry data filing through ACE, Deringer reaffirms its commitment to helping importers better manage their regulatory compliance.’

Those filing entries through ACE will reap immediate benefits including the ability to electronically review and respond to CBP’s CF28s, CF29s, and marking notices through the importers own ACE portal.’ Importers will also have the option of attaching an electronic file containing supplemental materials and using the ACE portal to track the status of their submissions, ensuring CBP has received the requested documentation.

‘Being a Trade Ambassador and working closely with CBP for 5 years, has provided Kewill with visibility into the latest initiatives so we can continue to invest and provide leadership in the standards to the importing community,’ said Celeste Catano, Kewill’s principal business analyst and the Trade Co-Chair of the Trade Support Network (TSN) Transition Committee. ‘The deployment of the first release of the Entry Summary processing delivers many changes into the hands of the filers. This release will be a benchmark to measure future successes with ACE as this lays the groundwork for the functional requirements anticipated over the next few years.’
