Strong of its skills and experiences, Catalyst has officially been granted the exclusive mandate for the ECTN procedure for the CGC in Guinea and CNC-GB in Guinea-Bissau.

The Electronic Cargo Tracking Note (ECTN or CEE) in Guinea and Guinea-Bissau, also known as Bordereau Electronique de Suivi Cargaisons (BESC / CEE), is an official marine document that contains information relating to the cargo and its movement for customs clearance between ports. In monitoring the maritime cargoes and controlling their transport costs, a unified ECTN / BESC / CEE Control System has been set up, the management of which has been granted exclusively to Catalyst Business Solutions.

Record and Submission

  • Sign-in needs two documents and numbers related : RCCM and NIF (Trade Register and number + Tax Id document). If the same, upload it twice

  • 4 documents are mandatory : Bill of Lading / Export declaration(s)/ Commercial invoice(s) / Freight fee(s)

  • Invoice (if freight is already on the commercial invoice : load the commercial invoice twice)

  • Delay delivery : 24 hours after submission

  • One mail for each step (sign in under process; sign in OK with Id and password; after submission and after validation): no mail means the step did not run properly, meaning "try again" or "wrong email address"
