Information and documents required for creating an ECTN
Additional information about the ECTN
We are not able to create an ECTN number for Burundi on forehand. Once the draft ECTN is approved, we can submit the ECTN for pre-validation to get the ECTN number. This number can be transmitted to the shipping line in order to obtain the required BL number. For validation of the ECTN we need the final Bill of Lading.
A pre-validated ECTN should be completed and validated within 5 working days. If not, the ECTN will be cancelled. All costs involved will be for the applicant’s account.
For creating an ECTN different rates are applicable. This depends on the Port of Loading and type of shipment, like LCL, FCL, Breakbulk or RORO.
