After you become an authorized AESDirect user, you are automatically authorized to use the system to file your Shipper's Export Declaration (SED) information using AES Option 2 Pre Departure. This option requires you to complete an accepted SED before shipment exportation. See Complete SED with AESDirect.
To enable this AES Pre Departure option:
On the Tools menu, click Shipper Editor. The Shipper Editor window appears.
Select the shipper from the Existing Shipper Numbers box and click the Modify button. The Modify Shipper window appears.
Click the International tab.
Under Shipper’s Export Declaration, select AES Option 2 Pre Departure.
Click the OK button. The Shipper Editor window appears.
Click the Close button.
To process an International shipment:
Complete the information on the Ship To, Service, Options, and Documents tabs as usual.
On the Ship From tab, type the Tax ID Number in the Tax ID Number box. Then click the down arrow in the Tax ID Type box and select the type of Tax ID Number used in the Tax ID Number box.
On the Documents tab, click the SED tab.
Provide the AES Transaction Number in the AES Transaction Number box. Use the following guidelines to provide this number:
For an Internal Transaction Number (ITN), type the number provided to you and select ITN under Type.
For an External Transaction Number (XTN), click the UPS Generate button if you want UPS WorldShip to generate a unique number, or you can type a minimum of 2 or a maximum of 17 alphanumeric characters. The characters are not case sensitive, meaning it does not matter whether you use capital or lowercase letters. If you click the UPS Generate button after you have typed a number, the number generated by WorldShip will overwrite your entry. Then, select XTN under Type.
Complete the remaining fields:
Click the down arrow in the Parties to Transaction box and select the desired item. Related means the shipper and ultimate consignee are with the same company; Non-Related means they are not with the same company.
Click the down arrow in the Routed Transaction box and select Yes or No. Yes means the foreign party in interest authorizes a US forwarding or other agent to facilitate export of items to the US.
Select the Ultimate Consignee Same as Ship To check box if the person or company specified on the Ship to tab and the ultimate consignee of the good are the same. Do not select this check box if they are different. If they are different, the Ultimate Consignee Address window appears so you can provide the address information.
