W e s t – A f r i c a – N e w s 15/17 

Dear customers,

Please note that from the 1st of November 2017 the Bureau International Maritime (BIM) will be responsible for the management
of the Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN) on behalf of the Port Autonome de Cotonou.

For all shipments with a bill of lading date of 1/11/2017 onwards, Shipping Line’s will not provide a master CTN and thus will
be shippers responsibility as per attached instructions.

Further details can be found at the below website of the new provider. http://besc-benin.com/

As soon we know the extra charges for the ECTN Note,
we will sent you a new Tariff Sheet shortly.

If you have any further question please do not hesitate to contact us any time.

With best regards
-RoRo department-
