Every good that passes through American customs gains a classification — and Section 321 is one of these.
However, anything that enters the country classified as a Section 321 does so completely free of importation costs.
But gaining Section 321 classification can be easier said than done.
To gain Section 321, an order of goods must be worth less than 800 USD, making it completely irrelevant to most US businesses.
Well, unless you go through the process of Canadian Fulfillment.
Canaidain fulfillment describes a process where you get your goods shipped to Canada instead of the USA. Your goods are then held in Canada until you receive an individual order, where they are shipped off to your customers from Canada.
While this may sound a little silly, it can save you a heap of money.
Canada does not have the same import tariffs as the US, which can immediately save you money. Then, because your large shipment is broken up into individual orders, each one can gain Section 321 — completely removing importation costs while saving you money in the process.
It is for this reason that an increasing number of US businesses have been seeking help from Canadian Fulfillment.
Canadian Fulfillment companies act like a middleman, allowing your goods to get Section 321. They receive your shipments from overseas, store them, and then send them to your customers in the USA.
If you want to save money on importation and shipping, then Canadian Fulfillment and Section 321 are the answer.
