CARGO TRACKING NOTE SYSTEM

Cargo Tracking Note System (CTN):

The Customs Division of the GRA informs all importers that the Cargo Tracking Note System takes effect from Friday 1st June, 2018. 

Under this system, shipping lines are to provide CTN numbers on all Bills of Lading. Shippers/Forwarders at the various ports of loading are to provide detailed and timely information on all shipments to Ghana in advance on the Global Online Platform made available for the purpose.

The CTN will serve to provide data to Ghana Customs and other Stakeholders well in advance to enable Cargo Review Processes in a manner that ensures:

-  Generation of key prior shipment information in “real-time” to effectively Control, Supervise, and Manage import traffic into Ghana.

-  Collation of reliable trade database to benchmark & protect Government revenue in import duties and taxes.

-  Plugging of identified loopholes & leakages in order to preserve the sanctity and integrity of Customs valuation of goods and freight.

-  Safeguarding and facilitation of trade in order to significantly reduce the turn-around time for Cargo Clearance which in turn will allow importers to avoid the payment of heavy demurrage fees and generally reduce the cost of doing business.

-  Provision of a one-stop comprehensive and broader view of the global logistics chain to Customs, the Port Authority and other structures of control which will eliminate duplications and enhance reporting requirements.

The introduction of CTN is in furtherance of GRA’s drive to modernize its operations for facilitation of legitimate trade in line with international best practices.
