PeopleNet announced it has partnered with Easy Manifest.
At least one hour prior to crossing the border, a carrier (driver or dispatch) submits their eManifest electronically to the respective border agency, either the Canadian Border Services Agency if entering Canada and Custom and Border Protection if entering the United States.
The agency automatically runs the information through several filters to ensure the truck and its load can legally cross the border. If any flags are raised during this automated process, the eManifest is either rejected immediately or sent for a manual review.
The system helps prevent rejection by ensuring the data entered is valid. If it is accepted, the carrier is free to proceed to the border. If the eManifest is rejected, the carrier’s representative makes changes and resubmits it prior to arrival at the border.
