DHL issued an emergency notice, saying that U.S. government agencies have stepped up the review of the entry of FBA cargoes under the 321 Act (U.S. Customs Regulation 19 CFR 10.151.Sec 321).
Any shipment that meets the following characteristics is no longer eligible for the 800USD/shipment tax exemption.
1. The same sender sent n(n>1) tickets to the same Amazon US warehouse within 1 day.
2. This n-ticket item will be regarded as “split shipments” by the U.S. government, and thus all of them will be converted to formal formalities requiring a formal clearance, regardless of whether the value of a single ticket is less than 800 USD.
3. According to the U.S. Customs Clearance Regulation, the official clearance cargo needs to provide the recipient Employer Identity Number (EIN), but US Amazon does not provide any customs clearance support for FBA cargo.
Based on the above process, all FBA shipments to the United States will be rejected by the U.S. government once they meet the above characteristics. DHL can only return such shipments to the origin.
Prime Day is about to begin, Amazon warehouse has begun to explode, and now the United States to increase the entry clearance FBA cargo clearance review, no doubt that this year’s peak season US station sellers clearance of goods is more difficult, if you prepare the goods in the season the last card was returned at the final clearance, then This year is basically dry, big promotion is a logistics relay, how does the seller balance the logistics service security and distribution economy during the big promotion?
First, promote the common three major logistics issues
During the period of great promotion, the number of goods entering the country has increased significantly. At this time, the state will strengthen the review of the customs clearance of goods and increase the inspection rate. At present, the United States has clearly increased its entry FBA audits.
Delay in parcel delivery
Due to the increase in the number of parcels on the entire platform during the big promotion period, logistics channels are prone to heading out, and delivery delays often occur.
Loss of parcels and low delivery accuracy
Sudden increase in the package during the big promotion period, is prone to packet loss, packet loss, while the probability of sending the wrong goods will increase, which may lead to an increase in the seller’s poor assessment.
Second, the reasons for product clearance
The declared value of the goods is too low (Customs has reason to suspect tax evasion).
The U.S. tariff threshold is 800 USD, but now the U.S. has new regulations, such as the new regulations that Xiaobian began to say. Although Amazon FBA warehouses are located in duty-free states, they may also generate new taxes if the FBA customs clearance process.
Product sheets and certificates are not complete.
Some special products need to provide the necessary documents, such as eyeglasses, beauty equipment, and medical equipment. These types of products need to be supplied by the United States as “FDA.” If these documents cannot be provided, they must not be imported.
Anti-dumping products were investigated.
These products are reflected in your commercial invoices, and 80% of them will be stuck in customs.
Amazon FBA shipment requirements in the United States, imitation brand products in the Los Angeles or New York airport clearance 90% will be investigated, the United States Amazon FBA’s chance of being investigated is also very high.
3. What should I do if FBA cargo is checked?
When the seller encounters the FBA cargo seized by the customs, the first thing is to analyze the reasons for the deduction. Because the customs regulations of each country and region are different. In the United States, there is a detainment deduction. The relevant customs department will give you an explanation. There must be a reason for the deduction. The sender or the recipient must cooperate with the customs and provide relevant documents.
The biggest difference between e-commerce and traditional trade is that e-commerce vendors often have no actual trade consignees when they ship, unless some e-commerce sellers have set up their own companies as consignees in the United States and the European Union, but the U.S., EU freight forwarders or Other companies are unwilling to accept tax and legal risks as trade consignees. Once the goods are detained, the seller not only faces the trouble of being out of stock, but is also likely to end up in a situation where both money and goods are left in the air, so the average seller will choose to find a logistics company with relatively strong clearance strength to help customs clearance, which can save a lot of trouble and can also avoid risk.
