posted by Jennifer Diaz August 21, 2019 0 comments

Tasked with the protection of the nation, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) siphons the protection of our ports to United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP). With the continuous threats to safety and integrity of the country, CBP is conducting a voluntary test to collect certain advanced data related to shipments potentially eligible for release under section 321 of the Tariff Act of 1930.

In order to cope with the e-commerce trend, CBP will allow online marketplaces, and other non-traditional partners to participate in the pilot program. If you wish to participate in the program, DTL can assist you in submitting the required application to the Department Of Commerce.
