Answer

We do not have data reports for all manifests. There are links from government agencies that may give you some guidance about specific data.

According to RITA (Research and Innovation Technology Administration), part of the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, there is no one resource for transportation data. In the FAQs, a question regarding manifests:

Are manifest data currently collected and released by the U.S. government for all modes of transportation and all international trade transactions?
No. Currently, the Customs Service only collects and releases manifest data for U.S. international maritime trade. Similar data for other modes is not available. Because both shipper based administrative trade data and manifest data are collected for the maritime mode, there are fewer transportation related data gaps for the marine mode than for other modes of transportation. In addition, the linkage of both the manifest and shipper based data sources facilitates additional data verification and quality improvements to maritime trade and transportation data. These are performed by the Waterborne Commerce Center of the Army Corps of Engineers and the Maritime Administration. New Customs and federal government initiatives will require the reporting of both shipper and manifest (from carriers) information for all modes of transportation as part of the efforts to modernize Customs' systems and develop a one-stop federal data collection effort, known as International Trade Data System or ITDS.

I hope these will be of help to you.
