U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has announced it will detail the rollout schedule to make its ACE electronic truck manifest program mandatory.

A notice will be provided a minimum of 90 days before a the policy is implemented along the Canada and Mexico borders later this year on a port-by-port basis, CBP said. That would slate the notice to be published no later than September.

Under the program, land border ports will require that trucking companies submit electronic cargo manifests to CBP in advance of crossing the Canada or Mexico border.

Currently, the e-manifest program is voluntary and has been rolled out across all 43 ACE land border ports in the states of Arizona, California, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas and Washington.

“To date, more than 3,200 truck e-Manifests have been filed through a certified Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) or the ACE Secure Data Portal,” stated CBP in an email to FleetOwner. “More than 200 companies are currently certified to file e-Manifests through EDI.”
