Penalties for Omitting Information on Tractors and Trailers from Automated Commercial Environment eManifests
The US Customs and Border Protection intends to penalize tractor and truck carriers that fail to provide cargo information in the Automated Commercial Environment eManifests as required by 19 CFR 123.92 (Electronic information for Truck Cargo Required in Advance of Arrival). The section identifies cargo data as:
Conveyance number, and (if applicable) equipment number (the number of the conveyance is its Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or its license plate number and state of issuance; the equipment number, if applicable, refers to the identification number of any trailing equipment or container attached to the power unit)
Carriers that continue to omit this information will potentially be denied entry into the U.S.
The Canadian Trucking Alliance is reminding carriers to always include trailer information in the eManifest as standard process.
