The Automated Export System (AES) allows you to submit an Electronic Export Information (EEI) form electronically to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The primary function of AES is to transfer any export-related information to the U.S. government. The data generated by AES is used not only for export statistics but also for many calculations, such as GDP.
The AES number is an identification number used in the Automated Export System (AES) for tracking and monitoring exports.
You can obtain an AES number by registering with the AESDirect online system provided by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Exporters, freight forwarders, and other parties involved in exporting goods from the United States may need an AES number.

Some exports may be exempt from AES filing, but it is important to confirm whether an exemption applies.
ACE is a comprehensive, web-based system for managing all imports and exports, while AES is a specific component of ACE used for electronic export reporting.
An Internal Transaction Number (ITN) is a unique number assigned by AES to identify a specific export transaction.
