Section 321 truck manifest enforcement begins

U.S. Customs and Border Protection requires mandatory filing of import manifests in ACE for trucks transporting up to 5,000 shipments with values of less than $800 each.

 
As of Jan. 1, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will take enforcement action against those carriers that fail to file an advance electronic manifest for so-called Section 321 merchandise transported by truck.
    CBP said it’s aware of the current technical restriction in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) that limits the number of Section 321 shipments that can be manifested to 5,000 or less per truck. A correction to this problem is expected to be in place by April 1.
    The agency said it “will not pursue any penalty action against these carriers who are unable to file a manifest due to CBP system limitations. However, enforcement action may be pursued for truck carriers with 5,000 or less shipments if the manifest was not submitted electronically.”
    The penalty for a first offense will be $5,000 and $10,000 for each subsequent violation.
    Section 321, which is part of the 2016 Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act (TFTEA), raised the de minimis level for individual shipments from $200 to $800, contributing to a significant increase in small and low-value import shipments entering the United States.
   Automating Section 321 de minimis entries in ACE has been a top priority for CBP since TFTEA’s enactment. The agency has said the lack of an electronic manifest hinders its ability to efficiently conduct risk assessments or perform advance targeting in the Automated Targeting System.
There have been record-high levels of imports over the past several months, primarily due to raised inventories ahead of expected tariff increases. But we are projecting declining volumes in the coming months and an overall weakness in imports for the first half of the year.
CMA CGM has begun purchasing slots on the Evergreen Line/Emirates/CMA CGM/KMTC/COSCO - AGI. The AGI also has added the vessel Beijing Bridge, which increased the vessel count from five to six and increased the total capacity by 4,378 TEUs or 21 percent.
