FedCash® E-Manifest Service

The FedCash E-Manifest Service supports the industry’s movement toward Cash Visibility as it enables financial institutions and armored carriers that work directly with the Federal Reserve to electronically process currency deposits and orders at Fed docks. The E-Manifest Service replaces the manual process of matching paper manifests for deposits and orders at Federal Reserve docks with a technology that enables scanning and an electronic exchange of data.

Now is the time to bring cash supply chain logistics up to speed.

The Federal Reserve has successfully piloted the E-Manifest Service, leveraging API technology, for currency deposits and orders beginning February 2023, and onboarded financial institutions and their servicing armored carriers across the country as early adopters.

As of October 2023, the E-Manifest ServiceFootnote 1 is available to all financial institution customers of the Federal Reserve Banks and their servicing armored carriers, with no fees from the Fed to use this service. With the E-Manifest Service, armored carriers, on behalf of their financial institution customers, can share and receive electronic information in real-time. The Fed is dedicated to working with you to increase adoption of E-Manifest and bring greater transparency and efficiency to the United States cash supply chain.
