EORI stands for “Economic Operators Registration and Identification number”.
In the UK and EU Businesses and people wishing to trade must use the EORI number as an identification number in all customs procedures when exchanging information with Customs administrations.

This prints on the bottom of your invoice for the shipment.

Please ensure that you fill this in or your shipment might be delayed by customs.

Default flight. #

A default flight to use on shipments. Quite often you will want to use the same flight due the time it arrives in the destination country.

This will be filled in for a new shipment, you can change it at any time on the shipment itself.

Special instructions. #

These print on the box label.
It is pre-filled by the AIMS installer, but you can change it to what ever you want to use

Requested aircraft hold temperature. #

This is printed on the box labels.

Print preview. #

If ticked, the default, the documents produced will come up as preview rather than print direct to the printer.

In either case AIMS will crated a PDF copy in the aims reports folder.

C:\Aims_reports_shipments\folder name is your shipment references. Eg.


Since most of the documents will be sent as PDF file there is little point in printing them out on paper. You will need to print the invoice as it needs to be signed.

Notes #

The default species / sex entries for boxes and price are at subspecies / colour morph level.
So you will have separate entries for white and grey Gyr Falcons for example.

The name for the shipper address taken from the CITES signatory entry on the preferences page. This ensures that it will match your export CITES permit exporter.

In the address book we have added a new field, position within company.
This is enabled if there is a company name.

You will also need to enter this in the user registered address form

If the Shipper address contains a company name then this will be printed under the signatory name.

This ensures that they are signing the invoice on behalf of the company and not as an individual.
