EEI Filing Options
What types of FedEx agent filing options are available for filing Electronic Export Information (EEI, formerly known as Shipper's Export Declaration or SED) to the Automated Export System (AES)?
You may select one of the following FedEx agent filing options based on your needs:
- FedEx Export AgentFile® application:
FedEx Export AgentFile provides exporters with a streamlined EEI filing and shipping label preparation process for regulatory compliance for FedEx Express shipments. The tool stores all of your filings, creating a record you can access online anytime within 45 days of its submission. Please note that all EEI filings records must be retained for five years from date of export as required by law. The user interface is easy to use and guides you through all of the important steps. To access this tool, go to FedEx® Global Trade Manager and click File an EEI before preparing your shipping label.
- Manual fax process:
Although we would prefer that you use the automated FedEx Export AgentFile solution described above for FedEx Express® shipments, the manual fax process can also be used to authorize FedEx to file EEI on your behalf.
Simply select the appropriate form below, then complete, print, sign and fax to 1.866.879.9037.
Note: EEI filing for international air cargo shipments (IATA 023) is not supported by the automated FedEx Export AgentFile solution. These requests must be submitted via fax as described above.
