Process Flow

Using AES Developed Software, AES Certified Service Center or AESDirect, USPPI/US Agent (Filer) transmits commodity (SED) shipment information including the booking number for vessel shipments

Filer delivers cargo and exemption statement to carrier

Once AES accepts the shipment, a confirmation number is assigned

Data are processed for validity against edit tables and U.S. Agency requirement files

AES rejects the shipment if certain information is invalid or incomplete. These rejections result in fatal errors, and must be corrected before cargo is exported. AES generates warning messages that will not reject the shipment, but must be corrected within four days.

Confirmation Number = ITN




Filer transmits ID Number and Shipment Reference Number = XTN.

Downtime Policy

  • AES down - your shipments move

  • Your system down - your

    shipments move

  • Contact one of your Client Reps

  • Report one of the XTN exemption

    message to correct and resubmit

    AESDirect sends accepted transmissions to AES

  • AES returns confirmation - ITN


Enables Internet application developers to allow their clients to pass data to AESDirect from their applications (enabled applications) that collect data for other export/trade purposes

Eliminates double entry of information
