Create an ECTN/BESC/waiver for Burkina Faso

Are you shipping cargo for Burkina Faso via transit ports in neighboring countries (like Benin, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo, …)?

With Magnotrade you can create the mandatory Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN/BESC/waiver) fast and easy.

Requested documents for B. Faso ECTN/BESC/waiver issuance are:

  • Dated Bill of Lading (draft is accepted), for validation a BL copy with the ECTN number is required
  • Commercial invoice
  • Detailed freight invoice
  • Registration card for vehicles

Following supplementary information is furthermore required:

  • Shipper’s phone number and email address
  • Receiver’s phone number and email address
  • Incoterm
  • HS code
  • ETA at the discharging port

It’s important to issue an ECTN/BESC/waiver as cargoes arriving without valid ECTN/BESC/waiver will be blocked for delivery by the local customs.

In case of transit via Benin, Ghana or Togo, a local ECTN/BESC/waiver for one of these countries is also mandatory.
