What is Cargo Tracking Note?

Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) also known as Bordereau de Suivi Cargaison (BSC) or Loading Certificate is an official shipping document that contains information related to the cargo and its movement between ports. Various shipper councils in different countries require this document while vehicle importation. CTN is requested by Customs to importers for clearance of cargo. All documents related to cargo must have CTN number if shipped under CTN. The CTN number must be provided to the ocean carrier at the loading port for addition in the manifest and Bill of Lading. Cargo traveling by sea must be issued with a CTN before departure by an approved agent.
