Cargo Transfer Form Under Review by CBP
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through Dec. 10 on the proposed extension of an information collection concerning transfers of cargo to container stations. Before filing an entry for the purpose of breaking bulk and redelivering cargo, containerized cargo may be moved from the place of unlading to a designated container station or may be received directly at the container station from a bonded carrier after transportation in-bond. This also applies to loose cargo as part of containerized cargo. The container station operator may make a request for the transfer of a container to the station by submitting to CBP an abstract of the manifest for the transferred containers, including the bill of lading number, marks, numbers, description of the contents, and consignee.
