What is General Order?

General Order (GO) is a status given to cargo imported into the U.S. that is missing proper Customs documentation or does not quickly clear Customs.

If they remain uncleared after 15 days, goods under GO will be moved to a General Order warehouse (a type of bonded warehouse.) Transportation and storage costs are the responsibility of the importer. Note that storage charges in a GO warehouse are costly.

If the goods remain under General Order for more than six months, they will be put up for auction or confiscated.
