What is ECTN?2020-05-28T08:17:22+00:00

ECTN is another form a waiver document and stands for Electronic Cargo Tracking Note. You may have heard about Bordereau de Suivi Cargaison (BSC) or Loading Certificate that is exactly the same as the ECTN document.

These waiver certificates are an official marine document that contains information relating to the cargo and its movement between ports. Certain African countries require this from shippers with an aim to effectively control, supervise and manage import/export traffic of the country. Each ECTN must be applied and validated at the loading port and are fundamental for the import customs clearance upon arrival. Cargoes not covered by a valid ECTN will be blocked by the local Customs until the presentation of the final ECTN and appropriate fine will be charged

Waiver documents have full details of the exporter/ importer, shipping method (containerized, groupage, etc), type and value of goods being transported, name of vessel and cost of freight for the shipment. These waivers are dealt with by the importer or exporter and must be filed before the cargo arrives at its port of discharge. The timeframe and duration devoted to getting the certificate validated vary immensely. We advise you to consult with our agents to find out what is the deadline for applying the CTN certificate of your discharge country. Your shipment will be penalized and ECTN will not be issued if you miss the certification deadline.
