ITCN
International Cargo Tracking Note

The Federal Republic of Nigeria is a west African country. It is bordered to the West by the BENIN to the South-East by CAMEROON, to the North by NIGER and to the East-North-East by CHAD.

Given the official decree by the Nigeria National Shippers Council (NSC), April 2019, all seaport entrances in Nigeria must apply for the International Cargo Tracking Note (I-CTN) certificate.

The I-CTN, also known as Advance Cargo Declaration System (ACD), was approved by the Federal Government with the aim to monitor and verify cargo entering Nigeria.
