Export your used vehicle via AES with a little help from us!

The US Census Bureau (Census) Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) mandates the filing of electronic export information (EEI) through the Automated Export System (AES) or AESDirect for all used self-propelled vehicles, regardless of value or country of destination. In other words, all used, self-propelled automobiles, machinery, and equipment intended for land, exported from the U.S. must file an AES. Before your vehicle makes its way to the border, make sure this is done or you’ll be waiting a minimum of 3 business days to proceed!


What qualifies as a used, self-propelled vehicle?

Agricultural machinery, construction equipment, special use equipment, automobiles, motorcycles and motor homes.

  • Receive an export account in your name

We will:

  • Prepare and file your AES
  • Prepare and file the 72-hour notice with U.S. Customs
  • Pay applicable duties and taxes on your behalf
