SUDAN: E.C.T.N. (Electronic Cargo Tracking Note) – SUSPENDED
E.C.T.N. for SUDAN
Implementation of the ECTN in Sudan as from June 1st 2016.
The Sudanese Customs Authority is introducing the Electronic Cargo Tracking Note for all shipments to/from Sudan.
For all shipments to and from Sudan (transit cargo included), the shipper or his forwarder are required to issue an ECTN in the port of loading and submit it to Antaser for validation.
Each Bill of Lading must be covered by at least one ECTN and its unique number needs to be inserted in the Bill of Lading and Cargo Manifest under penalty of fines for the shipping line.
Cargoes arriving without valid ECTN will be blocked for delivery by the local customs in Sudan.
This new regulation takes effect as from June 1st 2016 (date of Bill of Lading) and the electronic application will be available on the Antaser website as from mid May. Tariffs will be published during the next days.
Shippers/forwarders are requested to register at www.antaser.com or to use their existing username and password for their Antaser Afrique login to start issuing ECTN’s for Sudan.
