Shippers filing directly with the Census Bureau must supply the AES Internal Transaction Number (ITN) at the time of pickup by UPS. The ITN should be placed on the thermal label, produced in World Ship or on the invoice as close to the total value as possible. UPS can file the AES information on behalf of the shipper for a $US10.00 fee. The shipper must supply all necessary information for the filing, including their EIN number, License/License Exemption/License Exception and Export Control Classification Number (ECCN).

When the shipments are loaded with Freight Collect (F/C), the consignee pays all shipping charges to the contractor, and the duties and taxes the consignee has the election of paying for the service that the contractor offers, or with its own custom agency by preference. When the shipment (document or non document) arrives to Nicaragua as F/C, the consignee receives an invoice to pay for the shipping charge, and after he pays, the package is delivered.
All import shipments, are required to include an actual cellular or phone number, right and complete address of the shipper and consignee.

Therefore, in many cases, it is very difficult to locate the delivery point, resulting in service failures. All packages require a consignee's contact name and complete street address including apartment, suite or unit number if applicable. The consignee's telephone number should be provided if known.

For example, even if the Commercial Invoice has a value of $1.00 as minimum. This is according to law in Nicaragua, and is enforced by their Customs agency. In addition to a detailed description of each item, the shipper needs to write additional comments of "gift shipment" on the invoice as well as in the Special Instructions box on the UPS Waybill to ensure a proper assessment of duties and taxes. On the invoice, it must describe the real quantity and description of the merchandise that has been sent because customs takes one day to confirm the merchandise in the package and the description on the invoice are correct and accurate.
