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

You can quickly prepare the required ECTN (Electronic Cargo Tracking Note) document for Benin from Seanautic Marine. Local customs will ban shipments with an invalid ECTN.

For any cargo loaded or discharged in the Port of Cotonou, the shippers or their representatives are required to submit a BESC - Bordereau Électronique de Suivi des Cargaisons, also known as an ECTN Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (sometimes referred to as waiver), and have it verified by a recognised and official party.
