The FPPI (Foreign Principal Party in Interest ) is the party shown on the transportation document to whom final delivery or end-use of the goods will be made. This party may be the ultimate consignee. Generally the FPPI is the foreign buyer of the goods that are purchased or obtained for export. In a routed export transaction the FPPI is responsible for facilitating the movement of the cargo and authorizing a U.S. agent (freight forwarder) or the U.S. Principal Party in Interest to file the export information.
