Truck shipments: CBP guidance on e-Manifests and ABI QP in-bond amendments

US Customs has just issued important information regarding truck shipments into the United States:

e-Manifest Truck User Guide

The document provides instruction for carriers that submit electronic truck manifests to CBP in advance to facilitate a truck’s processing at a US land border crossing.   It has been revised  to include step-by-step instructions on creating and submitting an e-manifest, and also contains valuable advice about adding drivers, shippers and consignees to an account, creating standard manifests and shipments, and much more.  The truck users guide is available here.

ABI QP In-Bond Amendments

To avoid synchronization errors in amending a previously filed ABI QP In-Bond entry, CBP strongly recommends treating the two required ABI transactions separately:  First, delete the original in-bond data, and then, after receiving an ABI confirmation of deletion, resubmit in-bond entry with amended information.  The details are found here.
