Automated Export System (AES) Filing

You are here

Issues and Challenges

In October 2006, the U.S. Census Bureau (Census Bureau), Foreign Trade Division (FTD) developed the Automated Export System (AES) Compliance Review Program. Submitting accurate and timely international shipment information to this system is a time-consuming and error-prone effort. Detailed information about the contents and value of shipments to foreign countries must be collected and submitted to the US Customs AES. Managing compliance with the US Census Bureau requirement to file via AES can be difficult. In this case, companies must fully understand the regulations and requirements to take full advantage of the AES.



How Amber Road Can Help

Amber Road enables compliance with US Customs filing requirements by sending export shipment documentation electronically to the US Customs AES. Export information is collected electronically and edited immediately with the ability to detect and correct errors prior to the AES filing. Shippers also have the option to bypass freight forwarders submitting required documentation and submit on their own to avoid costs and errors. With Amber Road's AES filing capability, export records are far more accurate and the ability to track the customs status of every shipment is improved. This ensures compliance with the US laws relating to exporting resulting in lower costs, improved efficiency with fewer errors and enhanced customer service.
