Con-way Freight adopts Canada’s eManifest program

LTL carrier Con-way Freight is now using the eManifest program mandated by the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), which it believes will help cut cross-border transit times by 25%.

eManifest, the third phase of the Advance Commercial Information (ACI) program, is an electronic data interchange (EDI) and information management program under which the CBSA electronically receives product, shipper, consignee and carrier information for import shipments in a more complete and timely manner.

The program is designed to speed the transit of goods across the border into Canada while allowing officials to examine more closely those shipments, the agency said, and all cross-border carriers are being required to adopt it within 18 months.

“We have worked very closely with the CBSA to help bring this program into implementation, and we are pleased to be an early adopter and among the first LTL trucking companies to go fully operational with eManifest,” said Melissa Mathew, manager-customs compliance for Con-way Freight.
