What is the AES ITN?

When shipping items outside of the United States. If the value of the goods is greater than $2,500, you need to provide an Automated Export System (AES) Internal Transaction Number (ITN) for your shipment. Your ITN will look like “AES X20120502123456”. To get an ITN you will need to do so through the AESdirect system which is now hosted in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). You can find a link to ACE secure data portal here https://ace.cbp.dhs.gov/ .
