HermesTrade Enablement Platform readily supports the Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN), that is used for import of goods in many African Countries.

The ECTN document and its use is mandated by the Union of African Shipper’s Council (UCCA - Union des Conseils des Chargeurs Africains).

Hermes based ECTN is a great way for forwarders to simplify their export process to the countries that require ECTN and for customs/governments a great way to:

  • focus and automate their audit functions
  • control maritime cargo importation and
  • secure revenue per importation.
