New Electronic Manifest for In-Transit Truck Cargo to be Tested

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is planning to conduct a pilot test of a new electronic manifest in the Automated Commercial Environment Truck Manifest System for truck shipments of commercial goods transiting from point to point in Canada through the United States. This test will commence no earlier than May 27 and will run for approximately six months at the ports of Port Huron, Mich.; Pembina,  N.D.; and Blaine, Wash. Participation is currently limited to nine Canadian truck carriers, each of which is a bonded carrier and a certified member of the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism.  To learn more, click here
