AES Filing for Ocean Shipments

Hello,

We are in the process of testing export customs declaration with AES using our SAP GTS system for Ocean Shipments ( Mode of transport 10).

AES system is returning the following two error messages after filing;

PORT OF UNLADING UNKNOWN

TRANS REF NBR MISSING

Where can I find these two fields in the customs declaration?

Should I be downloading port codes from a data provider?

Regards

Venkat

    Hi Venkat,

    As far as I remember, the Port of Unlading is a 5-digit code in the "Point of Destination" field ("Geography" tab). Sorry - I don't know where you should obtain the codes.

    And the Transportation Reference Number should be added to a "Bill of Lading" or "Master Airway Bill" ("Documents/Evidence" tab).

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,

    Dave
