What is Section 321?

Section 321 is a shipment type under the United States tariff and trade laws that allows the duty-free entry of merchandise into the United States. The key feature of Section 321 is that it enables a single shipment of goods valued at $800 or less to enter the country without paying duties or taxes, provided it meets certain conditions set forth by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

To utilize these benefits, businesses and individuals must ensure their shipments are properly declared and documented, meeting all CBP requirements for a hassle-free import process.

At Borderworx, we specialize in understanding the nuances of United States tariff and trade laws and their applications. Our expertise lies in identifying eligible shipments and ensuring that they meet all the criteria set by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This expertise is critical, as improper classification or documentation can lead to delays and additional costs.

For businesses, particularly those in e-commerce, this can mean substantial savings. By strategically planning shipments to stay within the $800 threshold, businesses can avoid the usual duty and tax expenses associated with importing goods into the United States. Borderworx’s knowledgeable team assists in this process by offering consultation and logistics planning tailored to each business’s unique needs.
