The E-Manifest Truck Module is a web based application designed for
carriers and other parties responsible for freight interested in an
easy to use, cost effective method of meeting the electronic manifest
requirements of US Customs and Border Protection.
The E-Manifest Truck Module provides the user with the ability to
create Trips and link them to selected shipments, then forward the
manifest information electronically to Customs.
The E-Manifest Truck Module can be used in a variety of ways. We
work directly and individually with each client to create a customized
solution to meet their needs.

encourage users to electronically capture and share data without
dramatically altering their current workflow processes. The

- File Import
- OCR Scanner
- Manual Entry

their resources to their core business and not to reinventing methods
that are available.
