Gabon BIETC 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.). BIETC 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 BIETC certificate/number.
BIETC or any other loading certificate does inform the port authorities regarding the arrival date of the cargo and quantity allowing the authorities to be prepared for the discharge operations in advance. BIETC also prevents corruption stating the actual price of the imported goods and forwarding below mentioned transporting documents shortly after the loading of the cargo assuring authorities all transportation documents are authentic and are in order.
The cargo will not be cleared at the customs without a valid BIETC certificate/number. Since cargo could not be cleared at customs until a valid BIETC is presented, the demurrage fee will be in question in addition to a penalty fee at the customs.
