Shipping a car overseas can seem overwhelming at first, but can be made much easier by relying on an experienced international shipping company like K International Transport for guidance. One step of the process many individuals looking to ship a car internationally are unfamiliar with is the Shipper’s Export Declaration. In this series I will go through and explain the the Shipper’s Export Declaration, so the Automated Export System (AES) is no longer a scary term.
This part of this series covers the “Freight Forwarder” and “Intermediate Consignee Information” sections of the shipper’s export declaration that must be filed if you want to obtain an AES Internal Transaction Number (ITN), which is required if you want to transport a car overseas.
