Be aware that it is quite possible to modify an electronic manifest (ACI) even if your driver has already arrived at the port of entry. Here is what you will have to do in such a situation.
First, you must request an administrative reject of the manifest by the CBSA officer. Once done, return to the manifest control screen. Select the manifest to modify and right-click.
