Hi everyone, 
Great discussion here! 
Per Andy's questions, here are some answers from my recent experience working with USFW Inspector: 
4. Enter the closest Designated Port of Clearance, which you can find here: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.fws.gov_le_designated-2Dports.html&d=DwIFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=-lUMCZ4RK28H4qvcd3vmEBuyVJHHG0OpDzFenR9wX-A&m=2XIf2_oWAdaN6Plq7x-kxCDFCTn-VbMZNRWY0CSrz40&s=D605Ql8P6fMjcXBagMY-bjLmGvjuUiadbYf9vL77yCQ&e=. You'll also list USPS as the carrier (in section #7).
10. Enter the location it is being shipped to (university/collection address, etc.). 
You don't have to wait for the 3-177 eDec to be cleared to mail the specimens either, since you have 180 days after exportation to file with the appropriate Regional Director (who would be assigned it to a local port of entry) or you can just find the closest port of entry to file under (see #4 above).  I hope this is helpful! If you have further questions, please let me know. 
Sincerely, Shelby

Hi all,

The timing of these questions is perfect. I need to ship loans back to collections in Mexico, South Africa, and to Europe. These are the two questions that stump me, although there is probably an easy answer - 

  4. Enter the appropriate 2-letter Port code from the list below. [If I USPS how do I find out where the package exports from?]

  10. Enter the customs bonded physical location where the shipment is available for inspection [Our museum? The campus post office?]

The rest of the form makes sense to me. I file edecs and wait for clearance, then ship? Thanks for any help!
