EEI stands for Electronic Export Information and required for goods shipped from the U.S. to a foreign country. It is filed through the Automated Export System (AES) and is used by the government for developing export statistics and controls. The data contains information about the sender, the receiver, and the goods being exported. You must include it when shipping any one single commodity valued at more than $2,500 and specific commodities requiring a license, or license exemption.
Documents include but may not be limited to the following:
A Commercial Invoice functions as a Bill of Sale between the seller and the buyer. The invoice shows country of origin, a full description of the product and its intended use, as well as its commercial value. One original and two copies are required for all international non-document shipments. A Commercial Invoice can be printed with your label simply by selecting Create Commercial Invoice on section 9 of the create shipment page.
UPS account holders have the advantage of getting paperless commercial invoices submitted directly to Customs, which is faster and more efficient. This option is provided exclusively by UPS. You can either generate a paperless commercial invoice from the Parcel Pro shipping platform already on your letterhead with your signature added or upload your own commercial invoice. The invoice is transmitted by UPS to Customs for faster Customs processing.
