Compliant Reporting Solutions for Electronic Export Information (EEI)

Automated Export System (AES) Services

Electronic Export Information (EEI) is acquired and compiled by the government for official export statistics as well as export control to ensure that specific goods aren't being shipped to undesirable countries, organizations or individuals.

In an effort to modernize the procedure, the entire export compliance process is being transitioned to an electronic format that goes into full effect September 30, 2008. After that date, paper submissions will not be accepted and will be subject to penalties and fines. Fortunately, SmartBorder is, once again, one step ahead of the curve with our Export Filer application.

Designed and built utilizing the same cutting edge innovations that power our industry leading ABI and ACE solutions, you can trust it to increase your productivity while lowering your costs.
