What is an EIN?

An EIN (Employer Identification Number), also known as a Federal Tax Identification Number, is how the U.S. federal government identifies business entities.

Flexport will ask for a copy of your IRS Notice to verify your EIN when you are setting up your account with Flexport.

If you don’t have an EIN, you will be assigned a CAIN.
