The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) AESDirect is the primary filing tool for submitting your Electronic Export Information (EEI) to the Automated Export System (AES). When a filer submits their EEI, the AES will process the information and, if accepted, respond with an Internal Transaction Number (ITN). Whether you are new to filing in the AES or simply looking for additional training, this page contains the resources to help you accurately report your EEI.
