What Did Our Customers say?

Mishri Limbu CTN Customer

I was given the responsibility of looking after logistics of a substantial, 500 container project that had to be shipped from India to Burkina Faso in an around 6-month timeframe for building cement grinding plant. Initially, I knew nothing about ECTN certificate. Given the volume and the risk of the project, I was allocated a full week for ECTN research. Finding has led to the successful accomplishment of my groundwork within several minutes. Now the whole project is completed and I want to thank the Getctn team for their patient support over the past 6 months.

Michael Weils GetCTN Customer

As a group of industrial engineering students we had crowd funded project to build water sources in several parts of African continent. In order to ship necessary materials and recourses waiver certificates were mandatory. We are more than grateful for GetCTN timely service which in a way was also cheaper than others.

On September 2017 my containers to Libreville got blocked at the port because I didn’t have BIETC certificate. GetCTN team led by Kyle was very helpful in advising me how to avoid paying huge sums of money. I can say that GetCTN has saved me €30000.

Using as our waiver provider has actually increased our client’s satisfaction and saved money in terms of unnecessary bank charges. We used to get certificate all over the place and had to pay bank charges for each certificate. Now we get all our CTN certificates from Getctn for all of the 7 countries we export to. We make credit once a month and they deduct the certificate cost each time they validate one for us. Supper fast and economical, not to mention the convenience of getting all your certificates from one place.
