AES Stands for Automated Export System and is the system by which the US Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census gathers statistical information regarding US Exports. USCBP also uses the AES data for export control purposes.
The information is known as EEI, or Electronic Export Information – data previously submitted via an SED, or Shipper’s Export Declaration.
AES is required as United States export regulation. Non-compliance will result in fines and penalties from the U.S. government. We regrettably cannot load your cargo on the intended vessel without the reference, which could result in application of container shifting fees plus applicable demurrage charges.
