Automated Export System Technical Information
On April 5, 2014, the Automated Export System (AES) was re-engineered and incorporated into the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) trade processing system. AES capabilities allow the electronic filing of export information and ocean manifest information directly to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. On these pages you will find information on AES, technical documentation, software vendors, and AESDirect. The CBP Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirements (AESTIR) detail how to submit data via AES. For more information about AES, email askAES@census.gov.
