Any cargo, loading or unloading in the Cotonou / Benin harbour, whatever the final destination and the customs procedure, must be covered by an ELECTRONIC CARGO TRACKING NOTE (ECTN) / BORDEREAU ELECTRONIQUE DE SUIVI DE CARGAISON (BESC), also named cargo waiver. Any cargo not covered by the validated ECTN/BESC constitutes an offence to the regulation in force in Benin, penalties will therefore be systematically applied at destination.
For the arrangements following documents and information are required:
The BESC/ECTN needs to be approved within 5 calendar days after departure of the vessel.
