Mandatory Canadian Advanced Manifest Program Update

The announcement refers to the Canadian advanced manifest targeting program on shipments coming into the country.

eManifest is one of the Canada Border Services Agency's (CBSA) largest undertakings to strengthen Canada's security and at the same time improve commercial processes. This mandatory program covers all transportation modes and is part of the CBSA systems deployment package new program requirements and electronic system functionalities that impact freight forwarders and their authorized service providers.

If you are a freight forwarder involved with the movement of cargo into Canada, you will be required to transmit electronic information on consolidated shipments to CBSA (Canada Border Services Agency) prior to arrival into Canada.

More about the regulation

eManifest, the third phase of the Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program, is about getting the right information at the right time to enhance the ability of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) to identify potential threats to Canada, while facilitating the movement of low-risk shipments across the border.

When fully implemented, eManifest will require carriers, freight forwarders and importers in all modes of transportation (air, marine, highway and rail) to electronically transmit cargo, conveyance, house bill / supplementary cargo and importer data to the CBSA prior to loading in the marine mode and prior to arrival in the air, rail and highway modes. Additional information on the program can be found here.

If you have any further questions, please let me know. If you would like to speak to Scott from Descartes directly, his mobile line is 760-960-1960.

Scott will also be present to answer your questions about this important program at the e-freight Training Workshop this Sunday at 14:30 at AirCargo 2014 in Orlando.
