Senegal - Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) Implementation
Dear Valued Customer,
We would like to inform you that effective 1st March 2019 (BL date), a cargo Tracking Note (CTN) is mandatory for all shipments to Senegal.
It is mandatory for all Export cargo bound to a destination in Senegal to have a pre-validated CTN ( Cargo Tracking Note) per commodity item which need to be mentioned on the BL and Cargo Manifest. The Shipper must provide CTN number in the Shipping Instruction submitted to ONE.
The CTN procedure is not applicable for cargo in transit or transhipped at Senegal. Please be aware that for ‘in transit’ cargo it is mandatory to mentioned in the body of the BL the following remark “Container in transit for Mali”. If the aforementioned requirement is not complied with there is a risk Senegalese customs authorities may block the cargo as the cargo will be considered as local Senegalese cargo.
As per Senegalese law the aforementioned CTN procedure it to be adhered to in full by all shippers moving cargo to Senegal. Non adherence may result in delays in cargo release and fines being issued by COSEC. All costs & consequences related to non-adherence of the CTN procedure will be for shipper’s account.
We continue to keep you informed of any further development. Should you have any questions, please contact your local ONE office.
Thank you for your support.
