A valid ECTN Benin (Electronic Cargo Tracking Note) is essential when sending freight to Benin. Designed to monitor and safeguard shipments entering and leaving the nation, this computerised certification system is necessary.

In order to verify that the cargo complies with all customs requirements and security measures, the ECTN, which is provided by authorised agencies, must be included in the shipment. Weight, description, and market value of the cargo are all included on the certificate.

The time it takes to pass customs, the possibility of incurring customs fines, and the safety of the supply chain are all boosted when shippers have an ECTN. However, if an invalid ECTN is provided, the delivery process might be slowed down, the shipping charges could rise, or the authorities could even seize the package.

Seanautic Marine Inc helps you get through the whole process of getting the ECTN for your easy shipping process to Benin. We would never want you to face any problem and will be very much happy in serving you for the same.

    The ECTN is an export control document. It is required for all goods shipped from the Republic of Benin destined for a port outside of the country. To obtain an ECTN, the exporter must first submit a request to the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Republic of Benin.
    The request must include:
    A list of the products to be exported The Harmonized System (HS) code for each product The value of the goods The country of destination The port of exit from Benin Once the request is approved by the Chamber of Commerce, the ECTN will be issued The ECTN must be attached to the invoice and packing list for the goods. It is valid for one shipment only.
