Education: Section 321
Published: January 2, 2020 by James Woodhall
“The Des Minimis value threshold is the maximum monetary value of a shipment that can be imported into a country duty and tax free. On February 24, 2016, the de minimis value was raised from $200 to $800” – Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee Government Issue Paper: Section 321.
For eCommerce sellers, customs brokers, and government agents, online retail has brought about differing sets of challenges. The rise of des minimis from $200 to $800 was done in part to control the influx of eCommerce small packages to U.S. customs centers. Logistics has morphed into a game of time management. Federal government intervention of increasing the des minimis did have immediate impact on the logistics issues private enterprises were facing by removing the need for formal entry or duty-fees. Reducing time to delivery for millions of goods a day.
Section 321 imports decreased clearance time of the logistics chain; but what about delivery time? Sine Trading International, and/or other third-party warehouses can seek designation from CBP to become a Express Consignment Carrier Facility (ECCF). Perfect for Section 321 qualifying shipments or the new Type 86 transactions, this enables Sine Trading International to inspect and clear express shipments within 24 hours. These permissions are for warehouses with the capacity to process high volumes of imports. Let Sine Trading International deliver time to your logistics process with our ECCF facilities in Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York!

Opinion: Exposure in Australia?
Published: December 16th, 2019 by James Woodhall
Australia has been pursuing monetary stimulus due to contracting of the 'Down Under Economy.' In part to the governing party's obsession of running a government surplus. Which dependent on source of media, is a positive or negative for the economy of Australia.
To the Reserve Bank of Australia, in the current economic climate, this is poor policy. As the rate on reserves has been lowered three times in five months to stimulate growth on the island nation. The reasoning behind this is the Reserve Bank is attempting to stabilize inflation and maximize unemployment for the economic prosperity and welfare of the Australian people. The Reserve Bank of Australia's Chairman Lowe expressed willingness to lower rates further should downside risks continue.
This is likely to occur as Australia is growing at its slowest rate since the Global Financial Crisis at the end of the last decade. With unemployment and inflation well below the Reserve Bank of Australia's independent mandate. Sine Trading International's market research team suggests further monetary stimulus to occur through reduced rate on reserves to 0.50%. To the international trade community, this action will further weaken the AUD, benefiting their export sectors. Sine suggests our business affiliates look to invest in Australia.
With chances for future fiscal stimulus, a responsive Reserve Bank, and ongoing reassessment of the global supply chain. Australia is a market to enter today, for tomorrow.
