Stop getting held up at the border.
In 2020, U.S. e-commerce grew five years in one. Naturally, there were problems. Deliveries faltered. Reputations suffered. Now there’s a way to fix the problems and save money.
Time-in-transit frustrations? Livingston’s U.S. high-volume e-commerce brokerage services and clearance technologies are designed for you. Pre-clear. Duty free.
Section 321 is CBP’s new policy for speeding clearance of goods valued under (US) $800. Entry Type 86 (a function of Section 321) is a simplified electronic filing that enables CBP to identify compliant shipments and automate release.
The engine behind the speed? CBP’s ACE (Automated Commercial Environment), a fully electronic cargo manifest release and notification system being used by air carriers, freight forwarders, importers, and customs brokers to rapidly exchange data.
Now you can now take advantage of ACE and Section 321. Upload thousands of files in minutes at low cost through Livingston’s brokerage clearance services and Section 321 filing systems. Scale your business with confidence. No matter how fast you grow.
Automated border clearance with Livingston can save days of time on a shipment. Time waiting. Time clearing. Time in transfer. You can now pre-clear and move to the head of the line.
You’ll also avoid the cost of CBP staff at expensive Express Consignment Carrier Facilities (ECCF). Entry Type 86 shipments go straight to a container freight station for transfer.
Direct-to-consumer goods can ship duty and tax free into the United States. Stop paying duties needlessly and waiting for assessment. Transfer directly to your customers duty free.
Automated pre-clearance of lower-priced goods going directly to consumers sharply reduces the risk of improper classification, penalties, and future audits. Processing is as smooth as it is fast.
Because Canadian ports aren't as congested as some U.S. ports, U.S.-bound e-commerce imports can often move faster by crossing the Canadian/U.S. border on their way to American customers. Fewer documents are required. All data is electronic.
