New e-manifest mandates for Mexican border

Starting April 19, trucks entering the United States from Mexico though all land border ports in California, New Mexico and Texas must transmit cargo information electronically through U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The agency will practice soft enforcement the first 60 days, with compliance notices to carriers that arrive without submitting or attempting to submit an e-manifest beforehand. During this time, agents will use limited enforcement discretion.

After the first 60 days, carriers that don’t file electronically can be refused entrance into the United States or receive penalties of up to $10,000 for violation of the Trade Act of 2002.

Yea that is what I would do, make it easier on them.
