U.S. Customs Regulations require carriers to submit accurate manifest information for any U.S. bound cargo a full 24-hours before the cargo is loaded onto the vessel in an international port. Failure to abide by the established cut-off times may result in the assessment of civil monetary penalties or claims for liquidated damages imposed by US Customs.
