Flawlessly execute fully-compliant export documentation within the SAP-integrated export shipping software

What is ShipAES, the automated export system software for SAP?

Is your company exporting goods valued at more than $2,500, outside of the U.S.? If so, you need to electronically file export information through the Automated Export System (AES) with customs clearance software solutions.



Before ShipAES, the only way to file the export information was through the Census Bureau’s web-based system called AESDirect. Automating the filing process with ShipAES, the customs declaration service software, helps narrow your company’s focus to other business processes that require your attention.


The export shipping software provides companies running SAP ERP the ability to automate the filing of export information during the shipping process. ShipAES validates at a delivery or shipment level to ensure the export compliance. Upon compliance in the customs declaration service software, the filing is submitted to AESDirect for approval.

How Can ShipAES Benefit Your Organization?

ShipAES offers several advantages compared to traditional shipping methods.

Export Compliance

Automated export systems (AES) directly file information with federal governmental databases for export. The digital processes of import and export software like ShipAES reduce paperwork and allow for rapid editing.

Alter Reports

Skip the complex mailing process across global lines with rapid, AES-integrated edits. If there is an input error or omission, ShipAES can integrate with the government system to edit the issue directly.

Cost Reduction and Expedited Shipping

The increasingly efficient process of compliance screening software reduces export costs by millions and speeds up shipping every year. When your company’s shipments are compliant, governing bodies spend less money on duplicate paperwork and editing documents. That time cut lowers prices and reduces turnaround times.

How do import/export software shipping solutions work?

Export shipping refers to the process of shipping parcels internationally regardless of their method of travel.

  • Commercial Invoice: The commercial invoice provides a description of goods for import control and duties calculation. The form typically includes contact information, item description, the reason for export, and more details. 
  • NAFTA certificate of origin: The NAFTA certificate of origin is necessary when trading between the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Mexico.
  • U.S. certificate of origin: The U.S. certificate of origin is mandatory for countries to prevent imports from restricted locations, uphold treaties, and maintain duty rates. 
  • Electronic Export Information: The EEI form is a requirement from U.S. Customs and Border Protection when you’re shipping goods with a value greater than $2,500. The U.S. Census Bureau reports this information to maintain compliance.

What’s nice about ShipERP is that it is written completely in ABAP, the native programming language for SAP. Core to its technology is the use of web services within SAP to directly communicate and transact business with the major carriers that support this technology. By following Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) methodology it enables the ShipERP application to integrate seamlessly with carriers and provide real-time processing of shipments and tracking.


If a carrier does not support a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) the ShipERP product can also utilize XML via HTTP POST or EDI processing to communicate with the carriers. Other options for integration include tracking number generation using carrier algorithms or pre-generated tracking numbers loaded into ShipERP. Whatever the method of integration is, ShipERP can support it.

We excel in providing enhanced supply chain execution with ShipERP, the cross industry shipping solution. Industries that we serve, but are not limited to include:
