Benin main port : Cotonou


 SPEED TRANSPORT COMPANY LIMITED as agent for the issuance of the  BESC (Bordereau Électronique de Suivi des Cargaisons)  for all maritime shipments from Vietnam with destination BENIN.

It is the shipper’s responsibility to supply the Carrier with the CTN, which needs to be inserted in the body of the Original Bill of Lading and manifests. Some shipping lines will continue to accept and load cargo not yet covered by CTN, but CTN must be provided by time of final bill of lading instructions.

Late submissions will be in the form of a manifest amendment and subject to usual fees.

Cargo that arrives in Cotonou without a CTN in place will be kept onboard and returned to origin with usual additional freight and costs for account of the shipper.
