Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) also called Bordereau de Suivi Cargaison (BSC) or loading certificate is an official document containing information relating to the cargo and its movement between ports. This mandatory emission document is required in several African countries to control, supervise and manage import / export traffic to these countries.
The preparation of the certificate means an additional cost, usually to the exporter. These costs depend on the type of cargo (containers, general cargo, vehicles, machines, etc.) number of containers, number of Bill of Lading and country of unloading or destination of the shipment.
