We have been informed that with immediate effect a new provider of the CTN for all shipments to Sierra Leone has been appointed as per attached letter from the SLPA and the system went live as of Monday 2nd March.
Shipments with bill of lading date 2/3/20 and onwards, are now subject to the new system now being run by a new provider called LSS appointed by the Sierra Leonean authorities.
Shippers will have to urgently comply with the new directives by creating an account and paying for the CTN online.
As per the letter from the SLPA, the CTN must appear on the bill of lading and the manifest issued by the Carrier. No bill of lading will be released to shippers unless a CTN is provided.
Please see like to the new providers site.
