CTN is a loading certificate issued on the basis of the transportation documents mentioning the kind and quantity of the cargo, freight, and goods value and shipment details (container details, loading & discharge port and dates etc.). CTN is issued for each Bill of Lading and has a unique number just for subject transportation / Bill of Lading, therefore, each Bill of Lading needs its own CTN certificate/number.
ECTN does inform the port authorities regarding the kind and quantity of the cargo, arrival date & port before the arrival of the vessel allowing the authorities to monitor the port traffic and prepare the necessary discharge equipment for the discharge operations.
The cargo will not be cleared at the customs without a valid ECTN certificate/number. Since cargo could not be cleared at customs until a valid CTN is presented, the demurrage fee will be in question in addition to a penalty fee at the customs.
