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.

You can file the Electronic Export Information (EEI) electronically through AESDIRECT.Census.Gov. For more information please refer to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection website.
