CBP: Multiple Consignees and/or Consolidated Entries

(Ministère des Transports, Québec)

You will find attached an information notice sent by US Customs and Border Protection at Champlain. The document provides indications for the use of the electronic manifest by truck carriers when multiple shippers or consignees are involved. It doesn’t create new requirements but bring clarifications and answers frequently asked questions about the US manifest.

Also, we remind you that the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) electronic manifest will progressively be implemented from October 31st. By this date, highway carriers may begin to transmit their information through the Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) system.

The complete implementation timeline as well as many other information about the manifest are available on the CBSA web site here.
