We are the fastest and most reliable organization to provide Nigeria ICTN.

CTN certificate was recently introduced and became the official prerequisite loading document that must be accompanied by every cargo shipment with Nigeria as the final destination. The CTN requirement was implemented by Nigerian Shippers Council in 2019, obliging all Exporters / Freight Forwarders to obtain this certificate for each shipment before they berth Nigerian ports. Failing to present valid CTN document at request will lead to severe consequences and a hefty fine.
