The issuance of an ECTN is now mandatory for all FCL shipments to or from the port of Luanda, Angola. This regulation was put in place to streamline the loading and unloading of containers at the port, and to help prevent delays. An ECTN is a 10-digit number that must be obtained prior to shipping.
It can be obtained from the shipping company or the importer/exporter. If you are shipping to or from Angola, be sure to obtain an ECTN before your shipment departs. This will help ensure a smooth and efficient process at the port.
