Section 321 entry avoids clearance delay and allows for quick customs release of 1,000s of eCommerce parcels at low cost, meaning that we now have the ability to quickly identify the value of each consumer order, and then only pay duties and taxes accordingly per order.
This saves our clients a significant amount of money, if it is done in the right way – but very few logistics providers can do this. Which is why they prefer to work with a cross border eCommerce shipping expert like us, that can offer these specialist skills in-house.
Our ability to value these types of imports and to ensure that customs and duties are only paid when needed – and then do so immediately – means that express cross border eCommerce deliveries can move through the system as fast as possible. For any other type of importer, shipments such as these may take days to clear customs, but for cross border parcels, this is simply not an option.
There is now a new and more efficient way to handle Section 321 entries, which was launched in September 2019 by US Customs. Type 86 clearance is less complex and hence more efficient for low value eCommerce parcels, when compared to Type 11 informal entry – as these types of shipments still have to meet PGA data requirements.
In addition, Type 86 supports remote filing and is completed electronically – which enables us to expedite clearance of Section 321 Type 86 deliveries using the Automated Broker Interface (ABI), to provide the necessary information and then receive the required release messages.
