Electronic Export Information Filing
For shipments going out of the United States (excluding Canada), the United States department of Customs and Border Protection requires a Electronic Export Information (EEI) form, formerly known as the Shipper’s Export Declaration (SED) form to be filed when:
- Any shipment is valued at $2,500 or above **If the shipment is valued at over $2,500 but is made up of various commodities falling under several Schedule B numbers none of which is valued at $2,500 or higher, no EEI is required.
- For shipments to Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the former Pacific Trust Territories even though they are not considered exports (unless each Schedule B item is under $2,500).
In addition to filling out an EEI form, there will be a $5.50 USD processing fee per order for export compliance charged to your Shipwire Platform account.
