When the entry port into the United States is not the intended, final location of the goods, merchandise must travel in a bonded status from the port of arrival to the intended port of entry. This process is referred to as “traveling under Immediate Transportation procedures,” and is accomplished by the execution of United States Customer and Border Patrol Form 7512 (Transportation Entry and Manifest of Goods Subject to CBP Inspection and Permit). The merchandise is then placed with a carrier who accepts it under its bond for transportation to the intended destination, where the normal merchandise entry process will occur.
