As per Bill of Lading date July, 1st 2018 Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) requires a Cargo Tracking Note (CTN) for all cargoes to be imported into Ghana.
However the Authorities confirmed to give a grace period until August, 31st 2018 allowing the loading without a CTN. As of September, 1st 2018 a CTN is a must.
The CTN needs to be issued prior to shipping. We understand that a CTN can be issued for the whole groupage container. In order to include your shipments data it is mandatory to submit the following documents to SACO prior to cut off:
- Commercial Invoice
- Export Custom Declaration
- Bill of Lading
Fines may occur if any incorrect document/information has been submitted.

For further assistance please contact your local SACO Shipping Team.
