Companies that export out of the United States are required to report shipment information to the Automated Export System (AES), the system that the U.S. government uses to collect data on exports. The U.S. Census Bureau uses this data, which they call electronic export information (EEI), to compile statistics on economic indicators and the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) uses this data to ensure that exporters are following regulations and that exports do not end up in the hands of restricted parties who may pose a threat to the national security of the United States. If the exporting company or the foreign buyer is going to rely on a freight forwarder or other agent to file through AES on their behalf, they must present this agent with a written limited power of attorney or some other written authorization. AES filing information includes: Name and contact information for the USPPI, the ultimate consignee, freight forwarder and, if appropriate, intermediate consignee; Actual date of export; Method of transportation including the carrier information and the port of export; quantity, description; schedule B number, weight and value of goods; ECCN classification and export license or license exemption code; shipment reference number.
