Additional information about the CTN
Once the draft CTN is approved, we can submit the CTN for pre-validation to get the CTN number. This number must be transmitted to the shipping line and must be mentioned on the Bill of Lading. For final validation of the CTN we need the final Bill of Lading.
A pre-validated CTN should be completed and validated within 5 working days. If not, the CTN will be cancelled. All costs involved will be for the applicant’s account. A validated CTN cannot be amended.
For creating a CTN different rates are applicable. This depends on the Port of Loading and type of shipment, like LCL, FCL, Breakbulk or RORO.
