FedEx can help you file your
Electronic Export Information (EEI).

At FedEx, we make it our job to understand what government regulations are coming so we can have the tools in place to ensure you have the best opportunity to move products without customs hold-ups. Starting Oct. 1, 2008, Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) will require you to electronically file export declarations via the U.S. government's Automated Export System (AES), or use the appropriate FTR exemptions for U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Island export shipments. FedEx has been providing this service for years and has a proven online system to guide you through the process and help you avoid unnecessary delays and fines.

FedEx has the latest information on the impacts of the new regulations to the U.S. export shippers. Determine if your shipments need EEI filing and determine the right FTR exemption code to be used on the shipment label when EEI filing is not required.

For shipments that require the EEI, FedEx is ready to help you submit your important export data and give you visibility into your filing status. And with new regulations, you can no longer file the Shipper’s Export Declaration (SED) using manual forms. So, now more than ever, the online filing tools that FedEx offers will provide you with an easy and trusted solution.
