Scope has a USA electronic export declaration (AES/EEI) integrated within the air and sea export applications. This allows the export declarations to be created and transmitted during the creation of the export shipment. By the time the shipment is complete a response should be available from CBP indicating if the export entry or multiple export entries are successful and the required ITN numbers available for printing on export documentation.
