ABI ENTRY FILERS-U.S. Customs and Border Protection will send a copy of the TS309 to the Filer identified in the N1 if requested via the Automated Manifest System Broker Download functionality. The Filers will transmit individual releases for each TS309. Releases will be consolidated at the time of summary filing. Status notifications (TS350) will go to either the carrier or NVOCC and to the Filer via ABI as entries are filed and releases obtained.
