Recently, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a report stating that the vast majority of fake goods entering the U.S. came from China. We launched an investigation into this. Through our understanding, we learned that when the US Customs inspected goods last year, a total of 28,865 times were seized of counterfeit products, of which the vast majority of counterfeit products originated from Hong Kong and China. According to data related to counterfeit products seized by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CPB) in FY2015, the following categories are the most frequently inspected commodities by U.S. shipping:
Clothing and accessories are the largest category of fakes, with 22% of the cases seized. High-end clothing is highly profitable, so it is profitable. The desire to buy high-end clothing has promoted the development of the counterfeit market.
2, consumer electronics
One of the five counterfeit products is an electronic product, which is the second largest category of counterfeit goods in the United States. The number of seizures accounted for 18%. The total price of the seized goods was 13.25 million U.S. dollars, accounting for 10% of the total value of the seized goods.
Many American consumers want to buy the latest products, so to a certain extent they stimulate the purchase and production of counterfeit electronic products. Many consumers are easily victims.
The number of seizures of shoes accounted for 10%. Last year, the number of seizures of counterfeit shoes reached 2,818 times, twice the number of seizures from the previous year. Many shoe manufacturers have taken actions to combat fakes. For example, Nike has added many hidden details to its shoes.
The number of seizures of watches accounted for 10%. The total price of watches/jewelry seized in 2015 accounted for 45% of the total price of seized goods, accounting for the largest share. In August last year, 175,000 counterfeit watches were seized on one occasion. Like other luxury goods, watches and jewelry are easily counterfeited and infringed. Counterfeit jewellery and watches have become a key issue in the industry, and the Swiss Watch Industry Federation holds anti-counterfeiting activities every year.
5. Medicines and personal care products
Globally, medicines are one of the most frequently counterfeited commodities, with 8% of them seized. Due to the high demand for high-quality medicines, limited supply and high prices, selling fake medicines is very profitable for criminals.
Many counterfeit products, but also many authentic products. Drug patent infringement is one of the focuses of the United States.
The value of the handbags and wallets seized accounted for 15% of the total price of the seized goods, and the number of seizures accounted for 7%. Some handbags cost tens of thousands of dollars, and high-end handbags are very marketable. In an inspection by CPB in July last year, 10,788 Gucci and Coach handbags from China were seized.
7. Optical media
Optical media including games, DVDs, CDs and other products were seized 5%. The total price of seized goods increased from US$1.88 million in 2014 to US$3.25 million in 2015. And in the Internet age, these contents are gradually sold in electronic form, so it is more prone to problems.
8. Computer/electronic accessories
The number of seizures of computer/electronic accessories accounted for 3%. Many counterfeit products may be aimed at military systems and equipment, so these counterfeit products are not only harmful to the economy, but also detrimental to the national defense security of the United States. The profit of selling counterfeit computer parts is very high, and counterfeit computer parts have been found in US military weapons in recent years.
9. Counterfeit OEMs and labels
Counterfeit OEM and label seizures accounted for 2%. Counterfeit goods need to be branded and labelled. Labels and labels on counterfeit clothing are not included. These seized OEMs and labels include cloth labels, stickers and metal labels, which are often used in OEM clothing, handbags, shoes, electronic products and software.
The experienced US shipping double clearing dealers know that the US customs inspection is random and the probability is extremely small. But there is no guarantee that you will not encounter it, so what should I do if I encounter it?
If you encounter a U.S. customs inspection, it will delay the delivery time in the United States. The general inspection time: X-ray scanning is about 2~6 days, and the unpacking inspection is about 2~3 weeks.
How to reduce the risk of inspection?
Regardless of the country’s customs, it requires that the cargo information be consistent with the document information. As long as the goods are not contraband, imitation goods, and there is no entrainment problem, the U.S. Customs has a complete inspection and release mechanism. Therefore, there is no risk in formal customs clearance.

US shipping double customs clearance selection requirements:

(2) The guarantee of double-clearing door-to-door cargo rights in the United States is also one of the primary considerations. We are both our own companies in China and the United States, so there will be no uncontrollable errors in communication and cargo rights.
