Avoid additional costs!
The costs of the ECTN document will increase by 50% in the event of non-compliance with the regulations in force. 


More than often the application of the ECTN document is not in compliance with the regulations set by the Congolese Shipper Council.  For that reason they decided to increase the costs for an ECTN document by 50% in case a validation is requested beyond three (3) calendar days after departure of the vessel.

This will take effect from the 24th of September 2018 (B/L Date).

Please note that we need to charge you for those additional costs in case we receive your CTN request for Congo Pointe Noire too late.
