Cargo Tracking Note presents a platform for collection and management of commercial and logistical information relating to the cargo and ship from the port of loading to the port of discharge.

The justification of CTN implementation across Africa, and strictly by Customs Authorities is therefore anchored in several international conventions, programs and projects all of which forms part of:

  1. The ISPS code in its Part B of the recommendations
  2. The International program of the World Customs Organization (WCO) for the securing of goods, international trade, combating terrorism, organized crime and money laundering
  3. EU Advance Cargo Declaration regulations: 648/2005; 1875/2006; 312/24. 009; and
  4. The African Charter on Maritime Security, Safety and development (Oct 15, 2016-Lome).
