All marine goods arriving in Chad must be covered by a Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) or Electronic Cargo Tracking Note, according to a rule set out by the Chad Shippers Council (ECTN). This requirement is in addition to the current one that states that a bill of lading must be attached to every piece of cargo.

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

Every shipment with N'Djamena as its final destination must have an E-CTN, also known as a BESC. To prevent any difficulties or penalties when clearing the products at destination, shippers and forwarders are urged to adhere to the official authorities' prescribed method.
