Truck In-Transit Manifest Pilot Extension

On April 27, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a new Federal Register Notice (FRN), 81 FR 24837, to announce the commencement of a National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test relating to truck shipments of commercial goods that transit from a point of origin in Canada through the United States to a point of destination in Canada. This is called the Truck In-Transit Manifest pilot.

You may access the FRN here:

The truck in-transit manifest pilot was scheduled to end on November 27, 2017. However, based on CBP’s assessment of the pilot as well as positive feedback from the participating carriers, CBP extended the pilot for an additional year, starting November 28, 2017. 

The extension will run for 12 months at the following ports: Port Huron, Michigan; Pembina, North Dakota; Blaine, Washington; Portal, North Dakota; Sweetgrass, Montana; and Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan.  The pilot will not be open to additional participants at this time.

If you have any questions regarding this pilot, please contact Daniel Randall at
