This section contains additional information about processing International FedEx Documents and Commodities shipments from the StarShip Shipping window. Some fields you see in the examples may be "grayed out" on your screen because the fields that are available depend upon whether you are shipping a document or a commodity. FedEx Ground only supports shipments to Canada and Puerto Rico. FedEx International shipments usually have more than one label. There will be specific instructions on the label as to where you should place it on the package.
Important note regarding filing SEDs
Due to International regulation changes, FedEx can no longer file Shipper's Export Declarations (SEDs). If an SED is required, you must file it and obtain the Internal Tracking Number (ITN) prior to processing the shipment and printing labels.
There are two other ways you can file the SED and get the ITN number before you process shipments:
Self-filing using AESDirect.
Visit the AES Direct website using the link provided or by typing this URL: http://www.aesdirect.gov into the Address field of your web browser.
Arrange to have FedEx file as your agent either manually (information is faxed to FedEx) or from the FedEx website. Be aware that FedEx charges a fee for each shipment processed.
Note for FedEx Ship Manager® Server: If you file SED's you should wait to upgrade to StarShip 8.6 and FedEx Ship Manager® Server 072x until you have one of these methods in place.
NAFTA check box
The NAFTA check box only becomes enabled if your shipment destination is Canada or Mexico. StarShip does not print the Certificate of Origin for FedEx.
Duty Tax Payor/ Account number (if applicable)
The person responsible for duty taxes and fees incurred by FedEx, including the FedEx account number. Duties and taxes may generally be billed to the sender, the recipient or a third party. If the sender fails to designate a payor on the air waybill, duties and taxes will automatically be billed to the recipient where allowed. "Bill Sender Duties and Taxes" and "Bill Third Party Duties and Taxes" are options available only for deliveries to specified locations (call FedEx Express International Customer Service at 800.247.4747 or see the FedEx Express Worldwide Directory).
The ITN/FTR Exemption value prints on the International shipping label or waybill. Enter the ITN or FTR Exemption number in the field or accept the default value.
When you click the button, you can access more settings and information for the ITN/FTSR Exemption field:
Type in the FTSR Exemption number. You can also select an FTSR Exemption number from an existing list that includes an explanation of each FTSR Exemption number.
Exemption Number Defaults:
This field defaults to a FTSR exemption number of 30.55(h) for shipments that do not include a commodity with a value in excess of $2,500 for the same harmonized code or section B number.
A commodity with a FTSR Exemption number and a value greater than $2,500 will default to that value.
Shipments to Canada default to 30.58.
Enable the "An SED is required but I have not received the ITN number yet" radio button. Then, choose one of the following options:
I will file the SED: You can file through AESDirect.gov or the Global Trade Manager on FedEx Before filing through AESDirect, you must first pass a certification quiz. If you file using FedEx, please note that there is a $10 fee per shipment.
I would like FedEx to file the SED as my agent using manual filing (print and fax): Enter your FedEx Account Number into the field provided so that FedEx can bill the $10 filing fee to your account.
Enter the ITN, which is returned from the U.S. Customs AES system upon
a successful SED submission. Enter the Shipment Reference Number (SRN).
