ACE Filing and Transportation Reference Number

Hello All,

My customer says the Transportation Reference Number is required for US AES filing. But during our tests, there does not seems to be a check to either document type TRAR or the transportation number in the Transportation tab.

For the example we are looking at, it is a export via Vessel. GTS incompletion checks want a waybill. My customer says it is only required for US to PR. The export is going to Germany (DE).

So, 1) does anyone else encounter this behavior? If so, what did you do to resolve? 2) is GTS really using the waybill for Transportation Reference Number in the AES filing?

As always, I appreciate any insight or input.

Regards, Dean.

    Hi Dean,

    I have found on the internet the document "Automated Export System Trade Interface Requirement (AESTIR)" (see URL link below). Page 33, this document mentions that the "type" of transportation reference number is rather dependent on the mode/mean of transport, not the country of destination.

    https://www.cbp.gov/sites/default/files/assets/documents/2020-Feb/ACE%20AESTIR%20GeneralInfo_201828.pdf

    Please have a look at this document (if not already done)

    Hope this helps.
