Personal Goods, aka Casual Goods, is a Canadian Shipment Type for goods to clear through CBSA and ACI eManifest. It allows for the release of shipments consisting of non-commercial goods being transported by a highway carrier.

To qualify as Personal Goods the goods must not be imported into Canada for sale, or for any commercial, industrial, occupational, institutional or other like use. Personal Goods being transported by a highway carrier are required to be reported on an ACI eManifest. (Full article...)

Featured BorderConnect Screenshot

This BorderConnect screenshot is of the Assign ACE In-Bond Information page when creating an ACE In-Bond in BorderConnect. It is accessed when creating an ACE Shipment that requires in-bond information to be added to the shipment.

This page allows the user to add specific information to an ACE shipment related to an ACE In-Bond, such as adding the in-bond entry type, adding an in-bond entry number, a U.S. in-bond destination, a foreign destination if it qualifies as a type-62 Transportation and Exportation bond, bonded carrier ID, departure data and other required bond information.

The Assign In-Bond Information page is required when in-bond shipments are created and submitted in the ACE system, as opposed to a customs broker filing them using ABI. (Full article...)
