Effective July 2, 2018, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began requiring that form CF7512, which is related to in-bond cargo moves, be submitted electronically into ACE. CBP will no longer accept paper submissions.

Please note, that each additional bill of lading moving in the same container under the initial (master) Immediate Transportation Entry (I.T.) number, will incur an additional $10 processing fee beyond the standard $85 fee.
