SmartPostDetail/ CustomerManifestID Optional. The CustomerManifestId is used to group FedEx SmartPost packages onto a manifest for each trailer that is being prepared.

If you have multiple trailers, you must assign a Manifest Id to each FedEx SmartPost package as determined by its trailer. The Manifest Id must be unique to your account number for a minimum of 6 months and cannot exceed 8 characters in length.

We recommend that you use the day of year, the trailer id (a sequential number for that trailer). For example, if there are 3 trailers that you started loading on Feb 10, then the 3 Manifest Ids would be 041001, 041002, 041003 (this example includes leading zeros on the trailer numbers).

The maximum length is 8 characters.
