Declaring a Personal Goods Shipment in ACI eManifest
Personal Goods being transported by a highway carrier are required to be reported on an ACI eManifest. To report a Personal Goods shipment the carrier will need to create an ACI Shipment designated as non-CSA (or "Personal Goods" if using BorderConnect's ACI eManifest software), and ensure that the shipment is transmitted as part of their ACI eManifest.
Although a Personal Goods Shipment is different from a PARS shipment, the carrier will still need to provide a unique Cargo Control Number, as well as all other information normally required for an ACI Shipment including Shipper, Consignee and Commodity information. Read More
