U.S. Low Value Shipments To Be Subject to Truck E-Manifest Filings 2018-11-07

Dear Valued Customer,

In a notice issued on November 5, U.S. Customs and Border Patrol has said that, beginning January 1, all commercial truck shipments containing Section 321 merchandise will be required to file an advance electronic manifest in accordance to the guidelines specified in the Trade Act of 2002.
 
Shipments qualifying for Section 321 release were exempt from the electronic manifest filing requirement due to a policy decision made by CBP during the implementation of the Trade Act of 2002.
 
The rise in e-commerce, combined with the increase in the De Minimis value, has resulted in a significant growth in shipments being manifested and released under Section 321.
 
The lack of an electronic manifest eliminates CBP’s ability to conduct a risk assessment or perform advance targeting within the Automated Targeting System (ATS), and results in slower processing times and longer wait times.
 
Beginning November 26, CBP will begin a phased approach for non-compliance with conveyances being referred to secondary for processing. Then starting January 1, carriers that make no attempt to comply with the electronic manifest requirement will be issued a monetary penalty.
 
Find more details about CSMS #18-000656 on the US Customs and Border Protection website.
