Procedure change for Pointe Noire/Congo
Voor al onze klanten die naar Point Noire / Congo verschepen:
With immediate effect every shipper/consignee at Pointe-noire should be registered at the GUOT (Guichet Unique des Operations Transfrontalieres) in Congo.
In the past, the importers applied for an importation request or authorization from the commerce department to allow them to get the ECTN/BESC at the loading port.
Now, this process becomes electronic via the GUOT system. The client or his forwarder once registered in GUOT system can validate all commercial operation (importation) to obtain the T.I number which is required for us to make the ECTN/BESC.
Shipper/supplier should inform the importer in Congo to go and register in The GUOT to obtain an T.I number which should be mentioned on ECTN for each time he want to ship to Pointe Noire. Once they have the GUOT/T.I number we can load their unit(s) and mention it on the ECTN.
1- The supplier of the cargo sends a commercial invoice to the receiver/consignee.
2- With the commercial invoice, the receiver/consignee or his agent opens a file in the GUOT system to obtain the T.I number.
3- The T.I number needs to be sent to the supplier,
4- the T.I number together with all (familiar) doc’s, must be forwarded to us, so we can supply the ECTN/BESC like we always do for you.
