e-manifest seminars held across Canada

OTTAWA — I.E.Canada and the Canadian Trucking Alliance are partnering in a series of hands-on workshops to provide shippers with the most up-to-date information about the coming eManifest program.

At the end of October, Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) will begin accepting electronic manifests containing cargo and conveyance data from highway carriers.

Unprecedented cooperation amongst all parties in the supply chain will be critical to ensuring that the right information gets to the right place at the right time to avoid delays crossing the border.

The eManifest Preparation & Compliance Workshops will be held in Moncton, N.B. on Sept 16; Montreal on Sept. 22; Mississauga on Sept. 23; Winnipeg on Sept. 27; and Calgary on Sept. 30.

The sessions will be led by Oryst Dydynsky of The Descartes Systems Group Inc., an industry leader and Co-Chair of I.E.Canada’s Customs and Legislation Committee, and Jason Proceviat of CBSA, each workshop will include an overview of the eManifest highway initiative and the new requirements, as well as an interactive walk-through exercise to highlight the process changes that will be required of carriers, freight forwarders, importers and their brokers.

Attendees will learn: step-by-step how the new process will work; the changes carriers, freight forwarders, importers and brokers will need to make in order to prepare; CBSA’s expectations of each trade partner and how to ensure you will be ready to comply; available options for submitting information to CBSA; and CBSA’s client service strategy and plans for EDI transmission and Web Portal.
