Electronic Cargo Tracking Note

All shipments/ cargo with the destination Burkina Faso (via a foreign port of discharge), should be accompanied by an ECTN application. Once the ECTN has been granted, the ECTN will receive a Unique Registration Number or URN number. This number should be endorsed on the Bill of Lading and is required by the Burkinabese Shippers Council (CBC).

The CBC application is an application that allows the forwarders in the country of origin to apply for an ECTN/ URN.
