AESDirect Service Upgrades
The AESDirect Service will be upgraded this weekend with several enhancements designed to further simplify the SED submission process. These changes will be completed by 4/30/2001 and will not interrupt filing on AESDirect. The changes are:
Retrieve Shipment and Use as a Template:
When a previously filed shipment is retrieved and used as a Template, AESDirect will remove the export date from the retrieved shipment. This will avoid the accidental filing of the new shipment with the shipment date of the original shipment.
Until the introduction of the new in-bond module in AES all in-bond related information as been removed from AESDirect.
Display of Status Lights:
The AESDirect Status Lights associated with; Equipment, Intermediate Consignee, and Freight Forwarder Sections, will not be displayed unless data is entered/or exists for these sections.
Consignee and Intermediate Consignee Profile:
The ID Number and ID Type data fields have been removed from the Consignee and Intermediate Consignee data entry and display screens.
