 New AESDirectand AESPcLink Sample Shipment Guides Available
         In response to the need for a quick and easy training alternative that 
         provides our clients with the information needed to file their Electronic 
         Export Information, we have developed AESDirect and AESPcLink Sample 
         Shipment Guides.  These brief documents each provide screenshots of the 
         entire filing process in each respective application, along with important 
         information and helpful tips that appear among our most frequently asked 
         questions from our clients.
These guides will prove helpful for filers who are new to the AESDirect 
         and AESPcLink systems and also for individuals who utilize these systems 
         as their back-up method of filing and need a brief refresher.  Download 
         the sample shipments and use them as a step-by-step reference as you walk 
         through the electronic filing process.
These 2 sample shipment guides are downloadable from the AESDirect website at http://www.aesdirect.gov/support/userguide.html#sample_shipments. 
This is another effort by AES Customer Service to respond to the direct 
         needs of our clients to ensure that they get it right the first time!
         For further information or questions, contact the U.S. Census Bureau's 
         AES Branch at 1-800-549-0595, menu option 1 or at askaes@census.gov
