Cargo Tracking Note system effective in Ghana

The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) informs importers that the Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) System takes effect from July 1st, 2018 (B/L date):

"For all shipments to Ghana (transit cargo included),

Shippers/Exporters/Forwarders at the various Ports of Loading around the World are required to obtain a validated CTN number using the global online platform and submit same together with Shipping Instructions (SI). Each B/L must be covered by a valid unique CTN number which will also be inserted on the Cargo Manifest. Shipments not covered by a valid CTN number will not be loaded and fines may apply".

A transition period of two months (from July 1st to September 1st, 2018) has been given, after which containers without CTN number will not be loaded.
